Target's computerized cash registers went down yesterday, leaving customers left holding the literal bag with no real way to pay for them. Some employees got around the problem by using their personal phones to check out using the online interface. Target assures it wasn't a data breach, but Leo isn't so sure about that. It has happened before.
An unknown number of AT&T Mobility customers had their data shared by a third party partner of AT&T, the company reported in an official filing. The data pertained to unlocking capabilities of mobile phones in a third party phone market. The data included social security numbers and dates of birth.
AT&T says that all affected customers have been notified, but they won't say how many were affected. The law says that you must notify authorities if it's over 500.
