The Wall Street Journal reports that Verizon Communications is investigating similar security breaches at two more as-yet-unnamed retailers that occurred around the same time as the massive Target credit card hack late last year. The two retailers affected by the newly-discovered attack have not yet announced the event to customers. Verizon’s Bryan Sartin did not directly link the newly-discovered hacking events to the Target breach. But in an interview with WSJ, he hinted that the same entity might have been involved in all three retailers’ attacks: “The findings already substantiate a very real link between these later situations and something that recently happened.” People familiar with the investigation have confirmed to WSJ that Sartin’s team is investigating the Target attack.
