Target hackers stole and use vendor's server data to attack on Target's internal network. The Target hacking incident has had far-reaching repercussions. That is one reason the hackers and miscreants have been given a fair warning by the attorney general. They will be dealt with in the most exemplary manner.

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.
