The data-breach devil's in the details

Kim Zetter over at Wired's Threat Level blog has a tremendous feature story up today concerning the work of the Open Security Foundation, a volunteer organization that keeps track of data breaches big, small and smaller.

By monitoring breach reports published in thousands of places (including those that never get journalists' attention), the group has become ace at seeing patterns -- most recently, putting the pieces together about the Heartland Payment Systems breach well before the company copped to it. Zetter's coverage is long but impressive; well worth your time this morning.
