Credit card hacking is becoming rampant because hackers can make a whole lot of money at one time if they can get behind the firewalls of a major company. Skilled international hackers successfully programmed a data breach at Target that hit more than 70 million consumers. These hackers injected into the retail giant's credit card swiping machines and that malware allowed the hackers to collect data from the magnetic stripes on payment cards. The problem for the security companies hired to protect retailers is that the malware the bad guys are using can't be detected by anti-virus software.
Also, the more sophisticated hackers are using devices to hack into the RFID tags in credit cards. All the hacker has to do is move his device close to your wallet and 'Tag!, you have been hit'. The hacker then clones the copy of your credit card information to a blank card and soon you will be seeing very weird transactions occurring on your credit card statement.
