    Short answer no,
    Long answer no, if you are fraud protected and maybe watch what sites you pass out personal info to.

    If you are living in the European Union, at least the old member states, your bank allows you to deny or recall transactions to "merchants" for I believe up to 6 weeks. Credit card companies, US and EU, offer fraud protection in which case the Merchant doesn't get his money, so the credit car company doesn't care.

    I'd say a DNS server getting hacked is very unlikely, but if you read the article they also talk about who are targets and try to disseminate the fears of this happening.
