Another high-profile cyber crime has taken place with major North American credit card processor Global Payments admitting that it's credit card database has been hacked. The hack resulted in the loss of 1.5 million credit card numbers. The company notes that personal information on the cardholders including name, address, and Social Security numbers were not part of the theft.

Odds are that criminals will be able to use those stolen credit card numbers without knowing the cardholder's name. The credit card processor is working with authorities and forensics companies to catch the hackers responsible for the theft.
