Systems that cull data from Target’s stores, containing sensitive financial data of their customers were the victims of a breach that involved 40 million customers of the famous retail chain. Online Target customers will not have been affected by this current debacle because of the nature of the security break-in. It was limited to point-of-sale systems within the stores, themselves.
Secret Service agents are investigating this financial fraud. The store customers, meanwhile, can check their debit and credit accounts looking for any unauthorized transactions. Also advisable, is that they check their credit reports.
