Barnes & Noble Stolen PIN

Barnes & Noble has discovered that PIN pads in 63 stores were tampered with, and might have been recording customers' account information. Gizmodo has more information on what happened. 

You can see the full release from Barnes & Noble, which includes a list of all the affected stores, at this link. If you've shopped at one of them recently, keep an eye on your credit card reports and bank statements.

Oh hey, the one I shopped in last week made the list! Great...
