Target hack may have begun with another company
February 9 , 2014
It appears that those who entered the computer network of Target had to hijack the computers of a company near Pittsburg first.
Fazio Mechanical Service provides services such as heating and refrigeration to Target and confirmed that it was hit by an operation and is cooperating with Target and the Secret Service to figure out what exactly happened.
A security expert told AP that something most likely went wrong with Target since the hackers wouldn't have had access "if normal practices were followed." He mentioned that companies are not required to store any information regarding consumers on another network.
