It certainly has the potential to be bigger than TJX but no one knows
for sure at the moment. They process 100m+ transactions per month but
they aren't all affected judging by some of the press stories I have
read. As with any PSP they will process a wide range of transaction
types and I believe it was only their standard authorisation
transactions that have been affected.

Tough times for Trustwave at the moment though, they certified
Heartlands and RBS Worldpay - both have announced data breaches within
the past month.
