Target Stores Credit Card Breach

Quick Facts:
The breach happened from November 27, one day before Thanksgiving, through December 15, a period that includes Black Friday

Target said that the information compromised included customer names, card numbers, expiration dates and the short verification codes known as CVVs
everything an attacker would need to create a counterfeit card

If PIN codes were also intercepted, that would allow criminals to withdraw the cash of unsuspecting
customers from ATMs

Up to 40 million customers affected

The company said that customers who made purchases at its U.S. stores during the three weeks in
question should call them at 866-852-8680, or seek copies of their credit reports from the agencies Equifax, Experian and TransUnion
