    A few years later and there is still no 'damage'...

    Nobody knows that. It isn't like the stolen data has a meta tag stating "this stolen data brought to you by Catch of the Day". People could have had their credit ruined because of this breach and never have connected it to the source because of Catch of the Day's security by obscurity.

    Any company that uses this tactic of reputation management deserves to lose ALL its customers because they can't be trusted to operate in a responsible way with your data.
