As the on-line complement to my very popular "Trent's Comments" newsletter, this blog will serve as a way to access the entire newsletter, as well as timely matters of interest in between newsletter offerings.
I've recently encountered an issue with several of my bank clients that I think would be of interest to many of you. The company, Blizzard, that offers the popular World of Warcraft on-line game, has increasingly become a target of hackers in search of fresh credit and debit card numbers.
You may want to consider a general alert to your customer base about carefully monitoring for any unusual activity on their debit and credit cards.
One suggestion would be to consider a pre-paid card to use only for this activity, limiting exposure to any such breach. Blizzard is not the only such gaming company with these issues, but we are presently seeing a LOT of activity around their site.
