List of Cyber Attacks and Data Breaches in September

Although this month’s list may not be as long as August’s, it’s by far the most shocking of the year so far. The number of payment card breaches in the US appears to be going up and up and an end isn’t in sight. This list will continue to be updated until the very end of September, and as there’s a high chance of more breaches due to the revelation of Shellshock, I suggest you come back for updates.
