Target Hackers Given Fair Warning

Hackers who breached over 40 million Target debit and credit cards are the prime focus for the DOJ as well as all the law enforcement agencies. The attorney general especially issued a stern reminder to the hackers and anyone else who may be involved in smart money fraud. 

"We can confirm that the ongoing forensic investigation has indicated that the intruder stole a vendor's credentials which were used to access our system," Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder said.

They will not be let off so easily was the clear message he gave from his position of authority. It was from a Target vendor that the hackers found a way to worm into the system. And from there onwards they wreaked havoc and stole so much of the personal information of the Target clientele. Especially, the credit and debit card fraud caused untold damage to the accounts of so many people. 

While the probe into the massive crime is picking up speed, Target execs profess to have very little means of bringing the criminals to justice. They don’t have access to any cyberspace methodology to catch the thieves. It takes a thievish mentality to catch a thief. And the same goes for the laws of cyberspace. 

Hackers deserve white hat SEO experts who can root for their nefarious strategies. Cyber-security is of the essence here since to be prepared is everything in the game. There have been previous such attacks although they have been sporadic and not as humongous as the current one.

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.
