danlip writes: Target says Encrypted PIN Data Taken in Breach but doesn't think they can be unencrypted by whoever may have taken them because they never had the key in their system. The article has no details on exactly how they were encrypted, but it doesn't seem like it would be hard to brute force it given that there are only 10^4 possibilities for each PIN.
