    Default How hackers breached 2 gambling payment providers to harvest 'millions' of records

    I know that both Moneybookers and Neteller (and Paypal) have enforced a mandatory password change since that period.
    This is unusual and is not standard financial practice - unless there has been a breach - or a suspicion of a breach of the database.

    The "dongle" system used at Moneybookers now gives me more confidence in the security of the site.
