Target: Info Stolen From 70 Million During Last Year's Data Breach

Discount retailer Target says 70 million people had information stolen in last year's major credit and debit card breach.

The breach occurred in the three weeks after Thanksgiving.

In a release by the company Friday, Target said their investigation determined that up to 70 million people had their names, mailing addresses, phone numbers or email addresses stolen during the data breach. Target said that if they have an impacted customer's email address, they will try to contact them.

Previously, Target had said 40 million customers were affected.

Target also said Friday that they are offering one year of free credit monitoring and identity theft protection to anyone who shopped at one of their U.S. stores.
