Massive year-long credit card breach reported at Madison Square Garden - Bitcoin users unaffected!

Wed Nov 23, 2016 3:02 pm

NEW YORK (WABC) -- Madison Square Garden disclosed Tuesday it was involved in a massive credit card breach at five of its venues in New York City that lasted almost a year.

The venue said it found signs of external unauthorized access in the last week of October. It would have impacted some customers who used their credit card to purchase merchandise and/or food/drink items at Madison Square Garden, the Theater at Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, Beacon Theater, and Chicago Theater between November 9, 2015 and October 24, 2016.

The system hack was designed to find data read from the magnetic stripe of a payment card - data that may contain the card number, cardholder name, expiration date, and internal verification code.

I have the habit of only using cash for micro transactions due to stuff like this.

Haha, I had the same thought as you. However this just seems like a normal thing these days. Just switch over to BTC already..

I sure hope too. But I think we need more stabilization for people to want to adapt.
