Zappos is latest corporate victim of hack

The latest incident seems to be an attack on Zappos, with the company’s explanation here. Zappos even asks for twenty minutes to read the posting!

MSN has a “Redtape” story by Bob Sullivan about the incident (website url) here.  24 million customers had personal information (including last 4 of credit card numbers only) stolen.

It makes you glad not to be “working” now in a conventional company.

I don’t store any visitor information at all (other than through cookies associated with Blogger, as explained in the Privacy Policy).    All credit transactions are outsourced to e-commerce sites.   

I personally didn't shop at Zappos; "Sartor Resartus" belongs in college literature.
