Target Now Says 70 Million Were Affected by Data Breach


Target said 70 million customers were affected by a data breach at its stores between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15, an increase from a previous estimate of 40 million customers.

The change came during Target’s ongoing forensic probe, which revealed that “certain guest information — separate from the payment card data previously disclosed — was taken during the data breach,” according to a press release from the company. Target says the theft is not a new breach. The stolen information includes names, mailing addresses, phone numbers or email addresses for those 70 million or so customers.
