U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman talks about the arrest of four Russian nationals and a Ukrainian, who have been charged with running a sophisticated hacking organization that over seven years penetrated computer networks of more than a dozen major American and international corporations, during a news conference, Thursday, July 25, 2013, in Newark, N.J. The group, according to Fishman, is connected with stealing and selling at least 160 million credit and debit card numbers, resulting in losses of hundreds of millions of dollars. Princeton-based Heartland Payment Systems Inc., which processes credit and debit cards for small to mid-sized businesses, was identified as taking the biggest hit in a scheme starting in 2007 — the theft of more than 130 million card numbers at a loss of about $200 million.

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — In a July 25 story, The Associated Press reported that hackers stole about 800,000 card numbers in a 2011 attack on the Visa network. The story should have made clear that the attack was directed at a licensee in Jordan, Visa Jordan Card Services, and not on the central payment processing network used by Visa Inc.
