Report: Verizon investigating retail breaches
New York – Verizon is reportedly investigating possible data breaches at two unidentified retailers that use its networking technology. According to the New York Times, law enforcement notified the two retailers of the possible cyber attacks, and they then notified Verizon late in the week of Feb. 17.
A Verizon spokesperson told the New York Times that these attacks have similar earmarks to the recent Target breach and there is probably a link between them and an earlier event. Verizon is reportedly also investigating the Target breach. The U.S. Secret Service and Target declined comment in the article.
