Target Breach Widens: 70 Million Warned

Target discovers that personal information -- including names and contact information -- for 70 million customers was compromised in recent data breach

Target on Friday announced that an ongoing digital forensic investigation into its recent data breach has found that personal information relating to 70 million customers was stolen.

"As part of Target's ongoing forensic investigation, it has been determined that certain guest information -- separate from the payment card data previously disclosed -- was taken during the data breach," Target said in a statement, continuing the company's marketing-spin habit of labeling customers as "guests."

"At this time, the investigation has determined that the stolen information includes names, mailing addresses, phone numbers or email addresses for up to 70 million individuals," said Target. "This theft is not a new breach, but was uncovered as part of the ongoing investigation."

I think Target should be liable for the expense that financial institutions have incurred when reissuing all those cards.
