Target Breach Way Worse Than They Thought
The massive Target breach that took place over the holiday shopping season was apparently way bigger than the corporation thought. The U.S. company issued a statement on Friday that they have found that hackers also stole the personal information of at least 70 million customers including names, mailing addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses. Previously they believed that hackers stole data from 40 million credit and debit cards. The two sets of numbers are likely to overlap somewhat but experts are not sure yet according to Target spokeswoman. Some customers had their information stolen from a database and had not shopped in the Target stores during the breach from November 27th to December 15th.
