Scarborough, Maine-based Hannaford Bros. in a Boston Globe report Friday confirmed that malware that had been installed on the 271-store chain's servers led to a data breach that compromised as many as 4.2 million debit and credit card accounts. Hannaford told Massachusetts regulators that it found the malware but it didn't know how it got into the system, the Globe reported. Nearly 2,000 cases of fraud have been traced to the breach.

Jim: Legally speaking, we can't expect the PCI to keep up with the criminals. Therefore the legal system (Federal Trade Commission) is wrong to punish merchants like Hannaford and TJX for credit card break-ins. http://hack-igations.blogspot.com/2008/03/ftc-treats-tjx-unfairly.html --Ben
