So, like a buck for each of the 40 million victims and 27 million for the lawyers? Is that about right?

Actually it doesn't sound like customers are getting anything at all out of this deal, just the banks who issued the cards. Which makes sense, as while it may be a pain in the ass for the consumer who has their card stolen, a decent bank will take care of you and make sure you're not held responsible for fraudulent charges. They, however, do have to eat those fraudulent charges if they don't end up catching and suing the fraud committer for damages.

A class action lawsuit against Target by those customers who had their private data leaked would be a whole other deal.

Target agrees to pay Visa card issuers up to $67 million for 2013 data breach.
Meanwhile, the real 'fuck your ass' government data breaches require more of your time, more of your money, and more of your data. And there ain't shit you can do about it.

but ya... Evil corporations!
