More Target Data Breach Details 15 Feb 14

More details are surfacing in the holiday season data breach at Target. The blogger who broke the news of the breach continues to reveal how the hackers gained access to the retailer’s network. Cyber-security expert Brian Krebs says that sources have told him that the breach that exposed the financial information of millions of Target shoppers appears to have begun with a malware-laced email phishing attack sent to employees at an HVAC firm that did business with the nationwide retailer.  Last week, Krebs said the hackers used credentials stolen from Fazio Mechanical Services, a Pennsylvania subcontractor that has worked at a number of Target stores.
