Cybersecurity firm McAfee is contradicting the findings of the US Secret Service on the holiday season security breach at Target. While the government contends the hackers were well-organized, sophisticated and highly technical, McAfee describes the breach as basic. According to the company, the hackers used malware that could be easily modified and other common methods to gain access to Target’s point-of-sale system. One McAfee official called the attack “extremely unimpressive and unremarkable.” The credit card information of around 40-million Target customers was stolen during the attack, along with the personal information of another 70-million people.
