Target announced that its breach resulted in affecting the personal information of as many as 70M customers. The company had previously mentioned that only 40M people were affected and the recent announcement shows that the number is substantially bigger.
"I know that it is frustrating for our guests to learn that this information was taken and we are truly sorry they are having to endure this," CEO Gregg Steinhafel said.
The chain mentioned that sales have been adversely affected due to the hack.
