UPDATED 1/10/14: Shoppers are now learning that as many as 70 million credit cards and debit cards are now at risk after a massive data breach at Target stores.
The original number was 40 million, but Target has now upped the figure to include pretty much anyone who used plastic after mid-November 2103 at Target. That’s almost a quarter of the US population, so if you visited Target this holiday season, consider yourself part of this.
Target also says customer email addresses are also part of the breach.
It has all of us asking what we can do to protect our finances.
