Target Has No Comment On Vendor 07 Feb 14

Target isn’t commenting on reports that a Pittsburgh-area heating and refrigeration company is being investigated as the possible portal through which computer hackers stole credit card numbers from 40 million of the store’s customers. Target won’t comment because the investigation is ongoing. Fazio Mechanical Services of Sharpsburg, Pensylvania has issued a statement saying it was the victim of a “sophisticated cyberattack operation” that is linked to the US Secret Service investigation of the Target data breach. Internet security bloggers identified the company as the third-party vendor through which hackers accessed Target’s customer information.
