Citibank Says Hackers Accessed Credit Card Information

Thursday, June 09, 2011

Citibank has confirmed that hackers accessed credit card information for over 200,000 US customers (1% of the bank's 21 million account holders). The bank says the hacking occurred over a month ago. It's one more occurrence in what seems like a season of hacking attacks, with Lockheed Martin, Sony's PlayStation network, and Google in China also falling victim to recent hackings. 

Dan Lyons, technology editor for Newsweek - The Daily Beast, speaks with us about this latest breach.
