94 million customer records breached at major US retailer


In March 2007, when TJX disclosed that at least 45.7 million customers' credit cards had been compromised this breach was considered one of the biggest retail data breaches of all time. In October 2007, court filings related to the breach revealed at least 94 million customers had been affected, more than twice the amount in the original company statement.

In 2010, an attacker was jailed for 20 years for his role in the hacking and data breach.
