THE CHIEF executive of US retailer Target quit yesterday after months of grappling to deal with a cyber attack that took place last year.

Gregg Steinhafel was also chairman and president. The board thanked him for his 35 years of service at the firm. Finance boss John Mulligan is now interim CEO.

Up to 70m customers were affected by a data breach in November and December 2013 which let hackers access personal information.
