I was reading editorial in Times Of India and read these two lines:
This October as many as 3.2 million Indian debit cards were reported to have been compromised in a big breach of financial data. Even as that investigation continues, demonetisation has sent e-banking and e-wallets on the up and up with inadequate digital literacy to cope with this shift.
I dont understand following lines:
What does have been compromised mean actually ?The writer talks about some investigation. What is the investigation ?
The article is titled 'Check cyber crim', dated, 13 Dec(IST) at :http://blogs.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/toi-editorials/check-cyber-crime-as-india-goes-digital-fast-its-vulnerabilities-also-grow-at-a-worrying-pace/
Any help will be highly appreciated.
