Blog Contends ‘Target Didn’t Act Soon Enough’


Seriously, eternal (that is, daily) vigilance is the price of IT security. The Naked Security blog has a post on how Target stores learned that lesson the hard way in last year’s compromise of its credit and debit card numbers.

Target evidently failed to heed warnings by now former employees, federal law enforcement officers and others that malware was on its system until mid-December. “By then,” the post advises, criminals had been plundering consumers’ bank accounts and stealing their identities for nearly two weeks.” Taking security really seriously is the beginning of really good security.
