Security breach at Target
(AP) - Target says it's fixed the problem that allowed credit and debit card information on as many as 40 million accounts to be stolen. It says credit card holders can continue to shop at its stores.
But the chain also says customers should check their statements carefully for unauthorized charges.
The accounts are those of customers who swiped their cards at stores in the U.S. between November 27th and December 15th.
Target says once it learned of the breach, it immediately told authorities and financial institutions and is teaming with a third-party forensics firm to investigate.
Target says the information stole includes customer names, account numbers and that all-important three-digit security code on the back of the card.
Anyone who suspects unauthorized use should call the company (at 866-852-8680.)
