It turns out that last week, when we reported  on Citibank’s admission that it had been hacked, there was actually more to the story: over 180,000 more. That’s roughly the additional number of customers who had their credit card data stolen, bringing the total to more than 380,000, says The New York Times’s Eric Dash.
