Target data breach is being investigated

  • Attorney General Eric Holder mentioned that investigations regarding the massive data breach at Target are still ongoing. 

    "The Department of Justice takes seriously reports of any data breach, particularly those involving personally identifiable or financial information, and looks into allegations that are brought to its attention", he said. "While we generally do not discuss specific matters under investigation, I can confirm the department is investigating the breach involving the U.S. retailer Target. And we are committed to working to find not only the perpetrators of these sorts of data breaches - but also any individuals and groups who exploit that data via credit card fraud."

    Target CEO Gregg Steinhafel apologized in a recent press release and acknowledged the customers' frustration after their information was taken.
