Forcht Bank issues new debit cards

Herald-Leader Staff Report

Thousands of Forcht Bank customers have had their debit cards canceled.

The Kentucky-based company disabled 8,500 debit cards last week after it learned that hackers had compromised data belonging to a company that processes debit-card transactions for merchants.

Customers will be issued new debit cards within a week to 10 days, according to an announcement on the company's Web site.

The company said it was not aware of any fraudulent transactions as a result of the problem.
