WASHINGTON (AP) - A multi-agency government task force looking into cyberattacks against retailers says it has not come across evidence suggesting the attacks are a coordinated campaign to adversely affect the U.S. economy.
In a two-page report, the National Cyber Investigative Joint Task Force says the global implications of the retail attacks and the economic impact to private business and individual citizens cannot be overstated.
The report obtained by the Associated Press does not identify the retailers by name, but the report comes after recent attacks on Target and Neiman Marcus.
