MasterCard has made significant progress in restoring full-service to its corporate website. Our core processing capabilities have not been compromised and cardholder account data has not been placed at risk. While we have seen limited interruption in some web-based services, cardholders can continue to use their cards for secure transactions globally.
Operation: Payback [the DDoS attack] is being followed by Operation Bank-Troll -- an online effort to spread a rumor through e-mail, Twitter, Facebook and other social media websites that MasterCard has been hacked and credit-card numbers have been leaked.
On Twitter, some messages claiming that MasterCard numbers had been leaked included links to a PasteBin.com, a file sharing website where hundreds of numbers and dates were posted -- numbers MasterCard says are fake.
I read an article today that said that it was the corporate site that was targeted, NOT payments
...we can expect a lot of breathless misunderstandings from the worldwide press in the coming hours, not understanding that 3D Secure is an additional authentication layer on top of the card-not-present authorisation system for credit cards.
Problem is, there are a number of debit cards issued that will only work if SecureCode (3D Secure) is working and available.
