New York (AFP) - Giant US retailer Target said Friday that up to 110 million customers have had their personal data stolen in a data breach, sharply raising its initial estimate.
The number of people affected represented one in three Americans, and the scope of the information stolen was much broader than originally thought, Target admitted.
Target initially reported on December 19 that payment card data of some 40 million customers had been obtained by hackers during the year-end holiday shopping season.
Credit card hackers might be developing a taste for the finer things in life.
Upscale department store Neiman Marcus confirmed that its database of customer information was hacked last month, independent security researcher Brian Krebs reported on Friday.
