Target confirms PIN data was stolen in mega-breach

The massive Black Friday data breach that caused Target to keep call centers open on Christmas to support the 40 million customers affected might not be over just yet. CNNMoney has announced via Twitter that debit card PIN data was also stolen in the attack. This means that customers who purchased items in Target stores between November 27 and December 15 could have their entire bank accounts compromised, not just debit/credit transactions. It’s not the news Target customers want to hear, but it does show how deep this breach really goes.
