    Smile a security breach

    A security breach at TJ Maxx, Marshalls leaves shoppers open to identity theft.

    What does breach refer to here, a loophole or an event?
    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    breach - Definitions from Dictionary.com

    noun
    1. the act or a result of breaking; break or rupture.
    2. an infraction or violation, as of a law, trust, faith, or promise.
    3. a gap made in a wall, fortification, line of soldiers, etc.; rift; fissure.


    Security is viewed as a protective wall (Dan Browns "Digital Fortress" and the term 'firewall' use this same image.) and a security breach is a hole or break in that wall.
