System break-in nets hackers 8 million credit card numbers
Omaha-based Data Processors International Inc. (DPI) acknowledged in a statement that it "experienced a system intrusion" four weeks ago. But it added that the stolen data "did not include any personal information that could relate a card number to an individual."
The hackers didn't get the names, addresses, phone numbers or Social Security numbers of any cardholders, according to the statement. "It's still unclear if any usable data was compromised at all," said DPI, which processes credit card transactions for direct marketing and mail-order catalog companies.
