Crackers strike Georgia Tech computer, gain credit card data
Crackers invaded a computer at Georgia Tech and copied names, addresses and - in some cases - credit card information for 57,000 patrons of the Ferst Center for the Arts.
Tech said the database held credit card records for about two-thirds of the 57,000 people. Some cards had expired. The crackers had access to the computer between Feb. 4 and March 14, when the attack was discovered.
