JoeyRox (2711699) writes "Target experienced a system-wide breach of credit card numbers over the Black Friday holiday shopping season. What's unique about this massive breach is that it didn't involve compromising a centralized data center or website but instead represented a distributed attack at individual Target stores across the country. Investigators believe customer account numbers were lifted via software installed on card readers at checkout."

Agreed, Brian Krebs who Broke the story should get the credit here and his story is better than the Tribune piece. -=M
