[Bill Davis] "With the Apple purchase system, if I don't buy anything on-line from them for a while, I often find that I have an outdated card linked and I need to fix that prior to a new purchase."

It's not like Apple has been immune from this.

[Bill Davis] "I guess I feel that in any system where you have to re-authorize the card every month, you're put in a position where you have to have a current validatable card on constant file. "

An interesting point is that the number of compromised Adobe accounts is greater than the total number of claimed CC subscribers. This would indicate it included customers who made boxed purchases in the past.

FWIW - BOA, Chase and others routinely have to re-issue Visa and MC cards. That's because these cards have been compromised.
