Data Theft: WorldPay

On 23rd Decemeber 2008 RBS, Royal Bank of Scotland, announced that its payment service WorldPay had been hacked with around 1.5 million details stolen.

The issue was identified on 10th November 2008, but the formal announcement does not appear to have gone out until 23rd Decemeber.  Is this because RBS were shoring up their security, or making sure there was a very short news cycle during the Christmas holiday period?
