Windows 7: Target Knew About Credit Card Hack For 12 Days Before Reacting

Target Knew About Credit Card Hack For 12 Days Before Reacting

In a scathing bit of reportage from Bloomberg Businessweek we discover that retailer Target had received word that its security system had been compromised nearly two weeks before it moved to act on the information.

In fact, last year Target hired FireEye, a security firm, to watch their servers for malware. The firm, which has a Bangalore-based response team, informed Target HQ in Minneapolis that someone had hacked the company on November 30. And no one did anything about it.

In short, according to Bloomberg, “for some reason, Minneapolis didn’t react to the sirens.”
