Top e-tailers profitting from billion-dollar Web scam

I found this article on CNET http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-10399880-93.html
Considering that on that list there are quite a lot of 'big' names, it makes me think if I should be worried about some Russian/Chinese guys hack my card online or a very respectable retailer like Hertz, Barnes & Noble or Pizza Hut will sell it after I make a purchase from them.

I was pondering if I should get a Nook or the new Kindle the choice is obvious now : Amazon is not on that list.

Here is the 'shame list', the e-tailers tricking their customers and disclosing their credit card numbers to scammers :
