Visa drops card processor after breach

April 2, 2012 10:01:16 PM PDT
When the news broke that millions of MasterCard and Visa accounts may have been compromised, there was panic and questions from card holders.

On Monday, Visa has dropped the card processor, Global Payments, from its registry of providers that meet data security standards.

We learned too that Global Payments is working to tighten its security and is setting up a website to keep consumers informed.

Experts say it's almost certain many of the banks not reporting problems with this issue have actually had them, but are unaware or have not yet reported the issues.

That means consumers need to keep close track of their credit card accounts.

We are keeping track of this and will let you know as the facts change.
