We reported the other day about the potential damage to Target’s reputation if the data breach that, at the time, was relatively unquantified got big.
Well, guess what? It’s real big. So big that post is serving more as a public service announcement by pointing you to an article on Mashable which examines the depth of the issue and the concern shoppers should have.
“We’re asking everyone who shopped at a Target location since Black Friday to monitor their credit card accounts and contact their banking establishments to see if there is any suspicious activity,” Molly Snyder, a Target spokesperson, told Mashable. “Anyone with a Target Red Card or a card from another bank should remain vigilant and keep checking their accounts for fraudulent activity.”
