  • Report: Target Knew of Massive Data Breach, but Did Nothing to Stop It (TGT)

    A scathing new report from Bloomberg BusinessWeek alleges that retail giant Target Corporation (TGT) was well aware of impending hacker attacks to its payment software, but fumbled the opportunity to stop the breach before customers' credit card numbers and other personal data were actually stolen. Alarm Bells Ringing Target reportedly installed a $1.6 million malware detection tool from security firm FireEye in mid-2013, and hired a security team in Bangalore of all places to monitor the system 24 hours per day. If that team saw an alert from the security system, it would notify Target's U.S. security team in Minneapolis. That's exactly what happened on Nov. 30, 2013 -- hackers tripped an alarm indicating an intrusion, and an attempt to move the precious data. Minneapolis was notified, but according to the report, took zero action. The result? Up to 40 million credit card numbers stolen, and other personal details on possibly up to 70 million other customers compromised in the largest data breach in U.S. history. Security experts say the theft could have been completely prevented if Target had done one of two things: enable FireEye's automatic malware deletion functionality (Target disabled it), or manually and promptly isolated and cleaned the affected systems. Target did neither, and now must deal with the consequences. Employees have been let go, lawsuits have been filed against the company, and worst of all, TGT has lost the trust of its loyal customer base.

    The Bottom Line
