Target Security Breach Affecting Millions Using Credit or Debit Cards in Store


Attention Target shoppers! If you made any credit or debit purchases in-store between November 27th and December 15th, you will want to check your bank or credit card statements very closely.

Target released a statement today:

We wanted to make you aware of unauthorized access to Target payment card data. The unauthorized access may impact guests who made credit or debit card purchases in our U.S. stores from Nov. 27 to Dec. 15, 2013.

It appears that unauthorized access to Target’s payment card data during that time period may have allowed suspicious charges affecting millions of credit and debit cardholders. Keep in mind that this breach only happened in-stores and did not affect any online purchases. Head on over here for more details on how it may have affected you.

They way I read this it is now just Target card holders but any debit or credit card. Boo. I shop at Target all the time.  Heading over to double check our account now. Make sure you do the same!
