Common Questions About The Target Data Breach
" NEW YORK (AP) — With less than a week until Christmas, a real-life Grinch has stolen the credit and debit card information of about 40 million Target shoppers.

Target says anyone who made purchases by swiping cards at terminals in its U.S. stores between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15 may have had their accounts exposed.

function cbs_video_wnplayer_9652536_start() { var WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536 = new WNVideoWidget("WNVideoCanvas", "WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536", "2"); //Playback options WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536.SetVariable("widgetId", 9652536); WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536.SetVariable("addThisDivId", "WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536_addThis"); WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536.SetVariable("incanvasAdDivId", "WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536_adDiv"); WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536.SetVariable("clipId", "9652536"); // Controls options WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536.SetVariable("isMute", "false"); WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536.SetVariable("isAutoStart", "false"); WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536.SetVariable("controlsType", "fixed"); //AdRevenue settings WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536.SetReportingKeywords("CBS.BOSTON"); WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536.SetAdvertisingZone("CBS.BOSTON/worldnowplayer"); //Special snowflake style for video container WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536.SetStylePackage("dark"); WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536.SetSkin(CANVAS_SKINS.flat.silver); WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536.SetVariable("toolsShareButtons", "link,help"); WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536.SetVariable("overlayShareButtons", "link,help"); WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536.SetVariable("transportShareButtons", "cc"); //Size WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536.SetWidth(385); WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536.SetHeight(288); //Render WNVideoCanvas_vid9652536.RenderWidget(); } cbs_video_wnplayer_9652536_start();

The stolen data includes customer names, credit and debit card numbers, card expiration dates and the three-digit security codes located on the backs of cards.

The stolen information included Target store brand cards and major card brands such as Visa and MasterCard.

The data breach did not affect online purchases, the company said.
