Target Confirms That Debit Card PIN Data Was Stolen
(CNN) -Target confirms that encrypted debit card PIN data was stolen as part of a breach of 40 million accounts.
The discount retailer's debit and credit cards were hacked recently, compromising the payment information of an estimated 40 million customers.
The company acknowledged late last week that the hack began on Black Friday and stretched more than two weeks to Dec. 15.
At least two dozen federal class action lawsuits have been filed in a handful of states, and two senators have called for a federal investigation to make such a similar breach does not happen again.
