    40M credit cards hacked
    Breach at third party payment processor affects 22 million Visa cards and 14
    million MasterCards.

    This sounds like (yet another) classical example of "transitive trust gone
    wrong."
    Visa/MasterCard trusted a 3rd party to hold their data and - oops - the
    trust was misplaced.
