Target Discusses Breach With State Attorneys – WSJ.com:

Target confirmed on Monday that the company is partnering with Secret Service to investigate the breach, and said its point-of-sale terminals in U.S. stores were infected by malware, or malicious software.

All those folks suing for millions of dollars in damages… just a fyi there’s a precedent already set.  You have to prove actual damages.  Not potential fraud, but actual damages. Proving that your fraud is a direct result from the breach at Target… good luck on that one.

It will be interesting to keep an eye on this and what the actual root entry point ends up being.
