Previous reports said 40 million

Target's data breach over the holiday shopping season seems to have hit more customers than previously reported.

According to USA Today, the number of customers affected by Target's data breach is now up to 70 million. The number was previously 40 million

"I know that it is frustrating for our guests to learn that this information was taken and we are truly sorry they are having to endure this," said Target CEO Gregg Steinhafel. 


The report said some of the data exposed in the breach were names, phone numbers, mailing addresses or email addresses. 

Target's breach ran from November 27 through December 15, where customer information like their names, card numbers, expiration dates and CVV verification codes were compromised. 

Also, the breach occurred in nearly all Target stores across the U.S. in-store, not online.
