FWIW I got a call from one of my credit card companies this afternoon telling me they were canceling my card because the account had been compromised. There weren't any fraudulent charges posted to the account, but they were very insistent that they needed to close it *immediately* and issue me a new account number and card. Hmm... wonder if it's related?
Possibly, but card processing companies get hacked so often these days that it's no longer "if, it's "when". Lean on them to overnight you the new cards. It's happened to me about 4 times in the past 5 years and they always want to snail-mail the replacement cards.
