Fazio Mechanical Services Inc. released a statement saying, like Target; it is a victim of a "sophisticated cyber-attack operation".

We are fully cooperating with the Secret Service and Target to identify the possible cause of the breach and to help create proactive remedies to enhance the security of client/vendor connections make them less vulnerable to future breaches,” said Fazio President and Owner Ross Fazio.

Fazio Mechanical Services also would not comment on the on-going investigation but used the news as an opportunity to assure customers that this was an isolated incident.

“Our data connection with Target was exclusively for electronic billing, contract submission and project management, and Target is the only customer for whom we manage these processes on a remote basis.

No other customers have been affected by the breach,” confirmed Fazio.

Internet security bloggers pegged Fazio Mechanical as the third-party vendor hackers used to penetrate Target's customer information. Target previously said the store believed hackers gained access through a vendor's computer system.

Target’s website features a page specifically created to address questions and concerns about the breach. Target also now offers free credit monitoring and identity theft protection.
