Millions Could See Impact of Breach in Target's Security

Posted: Updated:

People who shopped at Target in the past few weeks may need to keep an extra close eye on their credit and debit card accounts.

The retailer says about 40 million accounts may have been affected by a data breach, impacting individuals who made purchases at the store between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15.

The Minneapolis company said it immediately told authorities and financial institutions once it became aware of the breach and that it is teaming with a third-party forensics firm to investigate the matter.

They say the problem is fixed and credit and debit card users can continue to shop at its stores, but they urge anyone who used their cards in those few weeks to be diligent in checking for unauthorized charges.

Target Corp. said that customers who made purchases at its U.S. stores during the impacted period and suspected unauthorized activity should call them at 866-852-8680.
