Was breach at Target internal or a vendor?

X-force has information on the specific malware that breached the Point of Sale terminals (POS).

The Internet Storm Center has an interesting comment,which is discussed in their newssummary section.

Is a refrigeration vendor ultimately to blame for the target breach?

This brings up another point – your vendors better have good security, as the weakest link in the chain breaks and allows the criminals in.
