The U.S. Justice Department has launched an investigation into Target after hackers stole credit and debit card data from 40 million customer accounts.

The retailer said on Monday that it was cooperating with investigators from the Justice Department, according to CBS News. Target also said it would team up with the U.S. Secret Service to conduct an internal review.

Affected customers have filed at least five lawsuits against Target.
