WKORV, WPORV and WKV are listed. I wonder how accurate the dates listed are.

Reading the article it seems similar to the attack against Target. Where malware or virus was installed on the POS systems. That malware then captured credit card information that was swiped. So I would suspect it is fairly accurate.

We have Wells Fargo credit cards---advantage they buy airline tickets and we get value of points

Wells Fargo fraud department contacted us months ago to let us know our cards were compromised and they had knew cards to us next day.

We were unsure how but I was surprised to see Starwood hack and fact we had used Starwood at time
