Target, Neiman Marcus not only stores hacked
January 13, 2014,
According to a Reuters article citing unnamed sources, Target and Neiman Marcus, which said on Saturday that it too had been hacked, are not the only two U.S. retailers who suffered data breaches over the holiday season.
The article said that there were smaller attacks on at least three other U.S. retailers that occurred earlier and could be related, but have not yet been disclosed publicly. They may have served as trial runs for the thieves.
The article went on to point fingers at Eastern Europe, saying it has been a source of major cyber crimes in recent years.
