TJX Kiosk Rumors Re-Emerge
Evan Schuman writes on StorefrontBacktalk:
How did the TJX breach start? Reports that the attack began using a wireless entry point have been confirmed by multiple investigators, but reports that circulated in March that the attacks began via an in-store employment kiosk have re-emerged.More here.
Could both be true? It’s unlikely, as both entry attempts were reprotedly successful, raising the question of why the second was attempted. Could TJX have actually been the victim of two simultaneous and unrelated attacks, one using wireless and the other a jobs kiosks that was not firewall-protected?
