Guess what people…there’s potentially a breach of bigger scale than that of what hit Target late last year.
Early reports by some banks indicate that there is potential evidence that Home Depot has been the next big name to be plagued by a data breach. To make matters worse…the Home Depot systems may have been ‘infected’ for lack of better words since May of this year.
To put that into perspective…Target’s breach that affected around the likes of 40 million debit and credit cards was only about a 3 week leak…
Naturally Home Depot has issued a statement saying that they are aggressively investigating and gathering facts. There aren’t a whole lot of other details at this point yet. I’ll update as they are publicized.
