Wednesday morning, Target Corporation announced that they believe about information about 40 million credit cards may have been stolen after being used at a Target store in November and December; Target Corporation has been conducting an ongoing investigation after they discovered someone had access to their payment systems, according to the BBC.

Target believes the breach began on Black Friday and continued for three weeks after that. They are working with the police on the investigation. They believe names, credit card numbers, expiration dates and security codes for the cards were all taken from all registers in Target’s 1,797 stores. It is believed that the credit card data was taken from November 29-December 15, 2013 and anyone who used a credit card in one of their stores during that period is at risk.

Prior to this, the largest credit card data stolen was in 2007, when 46 million credit card numbers were stolen from TJ Maxx and Marshalls; that theft took place over 18 months.
