Compromised Credit Cards

I recieved a phone call from my bank yesterday telling me that they had recieved notification from VISA that my credit card may have been compromised. Really? Because I hadn't seen any erroneous charges on my account (I can check up to the minute transactions online) and I am greatly aware of my personal security, so how had it been compromised? She told me that she recieved a notification saying that a whole bunch of credit cards had been compromised. I asked if someone had stolen the information ala ChoicePoint, but she just repeated the same things over and over again.

I guess I'm gegtting a new credit card number now, what a pain in the ass!
