Credit Card Security

Does anyone know anything more about this? I ask because on Saturday I got a call on my mobile from Currys saying that my order for £900 for two digital cameras had failed their security check, and they were cancelling it. This alarmed me rather, as I hadn't placed such an order, and they had my correct name, credit card number, mobile number and address (except for the flat number), so my details have clearly leaked from somewhere. I phoned my bank, and there are no other dodgy transactions, my card has been cancelled and I'm getting a new one with a different number, and I obviously won't be liable even if the transaction does go through, which it shouldn't since Currys cancelled it. So good for Currys for having effective internal anti-fraud systems.
