Target has confirmed the a password of a software vendor was used to breach its system to steal data on card details of 40 million customers. That seems to confirm the information of Brian Krebs that the attacker may have used credentials to the tech-support account of software company BMC which is a producer of “Performance Assurance for Microsoft Servers“ software. The BMC however denies the claim. If confirmed, the issue may be serious threat for many commercial companies using the BMC software.
