Target Data Breach Tops 100 Million Affected

New information has been released by Target following the massive data breach affecting shoppers who used Target Redcards during the holiday shopping season: Initial estimates were that 40 million accounts had been compromised by hackers, but a recent announcement from Target reveals that nearly 110 million accounts were hijacked, making this one of the top three data breaches in US history. Though this revelation will almost certainly lead to a loss of sales and a drop in stock value, we salute Target for maintaining transparency and promptly informing consumers of this escalated threat.
