Target store POS malware hack that effect 70+ million customer was written by a teenager. \ \ Wonder if this incident is finally large enough to pressure Credit Card companies to harden their POS equipment.  I would be happy if US based CC companies would at least go to the chip/pin standard that Europe already uses, even if it would not have stopped this attack.
