There have been 58 reported banking-related data breaches so far in
2010, according to the Identity Theft Resource Center -- slightly fewer

    * 8 were linked to card skimming attacks;
    * 5 resulted from stolen or missing hardware;

    * 6 are linked to an accidental breach;
    * 3 were of unknown origin.
