Target denies bank PINs stolen
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Target is responding to new claims that hackers who hit the giant retailer also managed to steal customers' encrypted bank PINs.
Experts believe the pins might have been compromised because banks like JPMorgan Chase decided to limit ATM withdrawals and debit card purchases of affected Target customers.
Target admits names, account numbers and expiration dates were exposed in the hacking case, but denies pin data was compromised.
In an email to its Redcard holders, the company said it would offer free credit monitoring for a year to everyone impacted by the data breach.
