International Checkout took 23days to notify customers of data breach

Well yet again another lot of evidence and proof has surfaced showing that a company that holds critical personal information that can be used for fraud has been breached, was aware of it and took their time in notifying customers. The company international checkout, was alerted to the breach within its database's in mid September 2011, it took them until the 31st of October to "finish" the investigation and then a further 23days later on the 23rd of November 2011, they notified customers via a letter. In the letter they state they have purged and cleaned all database's as soon as they was aware of the breach to stop further attacks, but really does this stop them or will the hackers just move on to a new exploit and continue what they are doing. This yet again shows a massive lack of customer care, specially for the fact they hold all the customers credit card and personal information.
