Discount retail giant Target, who has several stores here in the city, says its data breach from late last year is worse than previously believed.

The company now says personal information from as many as 70 million customers was leaked, including phone numbers, email and home addresses.

Last month, Target announced 40 million credit and debit cards used in its stores during the peak holiday shopping season may have been compromised.

The company says it will offer one year of free credit monitoring and identity theft protection to all U.S. customers.
