Charged for stealing 130 million credit card numbers

A Miami man has been charged with the largest data theft ever.

Less than 5 years ago, the main modus operandi for stealing identity information was dumpster diving.  If you shredded your statements, you were safe.   However – today, it’s much more effective to steal the data directly from large retailer databases. Once you’re in – you can steal large quantities of credit card numbers and other personal information.

The interesting thing is that the perp, Albert Gonzales, was an FBI informant who worked both sides of the fence informing the Feds, notifying the bad guys and wardriving wireless networks to inject sniffing software and steal credit card numbers.
