Canadian Shoppers May Have Been Hacked

If you shopped at a Target store in the U.S. prior to Christmas, your name and contact information might have been stolen by hackers.

An email from the company has been sent to some Canadian customers which warns their names, mailing addresses, phone numbers and email addresses may have been taken if they shopped at Target stores in the U.S. between November 27th and December 15th.

Target has said hackers stole data related to 40 million credit and debit accounts in the U.S.

Canadian stores were not affected because they have a separate point-of-sale system.
