First a trip down memory lane..
Jump in the Wayback Machine with Mr Peabody or just put on your remember hat.
My, it seems like just yesterday. Doesn’t it?
Ok adventure over, take off your caps and set the machine back to today.
Ohh look. What’s this?
Once again, BlackJack asks you to do a simple Math quiz. Get out your #2 pencils close your books and see if you can figure out what 2+2 is.
We already have one failing student, CNBC.com tech reporter Cadie Thompson, who offers three reasons for these attacks, none of which are correct.
#1 The security standards of some of these retailers is not that significant, they meet the minimum standards (half point for Cadie)

#3 Cyber criminals see this has a huge opportunity. The Return on Investment is big to Target these huge retailers.
Sorry, Wrong answers Cadie. Off you go to Principal Grim’s office.
Anyone else want to give it a go?
