    I've been following this story from an end user POV.
    The ramifications continue to gather pace.

    What a farce especially on top of the other recent data thefts; Choice point etc.

    Here in Oz a spokesperson from our third biggest bank said "this shouldn't be too big a problem, probably only a couple of thousand customers should be affected"

    !!!??##%%**

    That statement is apalling from so many points of view.

    Here we are good and interested gnomes beavering away helping each other to protect ourselves and our friends; and the big boys (to whom we pay MASSIVE fees) are leaking like the Titanic.

    I just occassionally feel so defeated and so sad at the rampant cynicism and lack of concern.
