Target Breach More Devastating than Expected

Jan 10 2014, 1:23pm CST | by , in News | Technology News

Target took the incident a little too lightly in the beginning. Yet now it is seriously thinking about confronting the security and data breach which occurred recently. That is because the damage done to its reputation by hackers is far more devastating than expected.

Target Breach More Devastating than Expected

Target had only bad news for its customers who got their identities stolen in a major hacking incident that took place a while ago. Email addresses and other crucial private information got leaked. And over 70 million individuals had been hoodwinked by the hackers. 

That is more than the original 40 million that was estimated to have been supposedly defrauded at the start. Target’s very reputation is at stake here. The store administration formally apologized to all the people affected by the scam. It also offered them tips on how to reduce the chances of such a future incident.

“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,” said Gregg Steinhafel, chairman, president and chief executive officer, Target. “I also want our guests to know that understanding and sharing the facts related to this incident is important to me and the entire Target team.” 

Of course, the consumers won’t be guilty of any wrongdoing that occurs via their stolen credentials. They will bear no responsibility whatsoever. Target also reminded its customers that the purloined info had only occurred on a partial basis. In other words, it was not the end of the world. Life still went on as usual despite the manmade disasters (of which the major one was hacking or online theft). 

All sorts of efforts are being made to bring the group of hackers who perpetrated this sick scheme within the clutches of the law. However, in the future, the store would have to take extra precautions and be hyper-vigilant.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
