How can this happen? I guess PCI DSS is not working, although it is the prepaid debit card companies themselves that have been exploited. Apparently they are less secure than other financial institutions? But are they not financial institutions per se themselves?

They are not naming the Visa and Mastercard prepaid card companies in the US that were compromised. I wonder why 😉

I find it amazing that after the first attack in December, that there was an identical one in February. It seems to be that the ring leaders were caught, but what about all the hackers sitting behind this operation? I am sure they are still out there hacking away and getting away with it.
