PCI wasn't even required in Japan until last year.

The leaked information includes customers' names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, date of birth and type of work, according to JR Kyushu. Credit card numbers, security codes and expiration dates of up to 2,800 customers were also stolen.

So many times on Japanese websites they require you to put in information that isn't relevant to whatever you are signing up for. I try to use fake info as much as possible for this very reason.

Not just in Japan, in most developed countries, companies know our records and history.

We get calls from some unknown companies almost every day. Don't we? And CCTV following us everywhere we go.

Let me guess, the password on the Windows XP computer holding the information was 'himawari' or some such..?

I'm guessing this is an outside attack because Japanese would never do this kind of thing...

For all those point cards, I do the same. I hope the fake address I put in doesn't actually exist.
