Home Depot Gets Hacked
Credit and debit card information that went on sale on a criminal internet site this morning may be from Home Depot stores and could be linked to hackers previously responsible for breaches at Target and P.F. Chang's. Here's the latest information. According to USA Today Newspaper, Home Depot spokeswoman Paula Drake said she could only "confirm that we're looking into some unusual activity and we are working with our banking partners and law enforcement to investigate."
Drake said Home Depot takes protecting customers' information extremely seriously. "We are aggressively gathering facts at this point while working to protect customers. If we confirm that a breach has occurred, we will make sure customers are notified immediately," she said.
