Thieves Found Citigroup Site an Easy Entry for customer data

NY Times reports Hackers get into Citigroup via their customer credit card account management web site. In 2008, the underground market for the data was flooded with more than 360 million stolen personal records, most of them credit and debit files. That compared with 3.8 million records stolen in 2010, according to a report by Verizon and the Secret Service, which investigates credit card fraud along with other law enforcement agencies like the Federal Bureau of Investigation. As a result, the price of data is going up and hackers abound.
