A new report says Target officials waited nearly two weeks to respond to a massive data breach.
According to Bloomberg Businessweek, the retailer has a $1.6 million malware detection tool, the same system used by the CIA and Pentagon.
On December 2, the same day hackers started stealing information, the security system detected the hack. Ten days later, Federal investigators warned Target that there'd been a massive breach.
Target officials told reporters it took three days to confirm the breach and eradicate the malware.
By December 15, hackers had gotten away with 40 million credit card numbers.
