TJX Breach Count at 200,000 or $36.4M

I was exchanging email with Jenn Abelson at the Boston Globe the past couple of days, as she is running point on the story. It was reported by her today that the tally stands at 200,000 card numbers. You know what the real story is:

This number was reported by Massachusetts Community Banks, NOT TJX!!!!

So watch this record number rise. And the associated costs.

By the way, the cost for this breach using the numbers computed by Dr. Larry Ponemon at the Ponemon Institute bring the cost to $36.4M to date. This is only the numbers that BANKS were able to figure out, not TJX or their contractors brought in to do the clean up.
