Home Depot Data BreachHome Depot Data Breach

 

According to CNBC, Home Depot has confirmed the suspected data breach and it may affect consumers who shopped in store since April 2014. Apparently this does not affect purchase made online at HomeDepot.com

Home Depot will be providing free identity protection services, including credit monitoring, to any customer who has shopped at a Home Depot store in 2014, from April on.

Our IT security team brought in some of the very best IT security firms as soon as we were notified that there
was a possible breach. As a result of their investigations, we can now confirm that a breach has occurred. We
strongly encourage our customers to review your payment card statements carefully and call your bank or card
issuer if you see any suspicious transactions. The policies of the payment card brands such as Visa, MasterCard,
American Express and Discover provide that you have zero liability for any unauthorized charges if you report
them in a timely manner. We are offering free identity protection services, including credit monitoring to any
customer who used a payment card at a Home Depot store in 2014, from April on.

Since we first became aware of a potential breach, our forensics and security teams have been working around
the clock with leading IT security firms, our banking partners, and the Secret Service. We felt it was important to
let everyone know that we’re confident there has been a breach. We know it’s frustrating not to have all the
details, but you won’t be responsible for any fraudulent charges, and we are offering free identity protection
services, including credit monitoring to any customer who used a payment card at a Home Depot store in 2014,
from April on.

This is an ongoing investigation; however, we have confirmed that our payment data systems have been
breached. Our investigation of the details of the breach is likely to take some time. Fortunately, you won’t be
responsible for any fraudulent charges, and we are offering free identity protection services, including credit
monitoring to any customer who used a payment card at a Home Depot store in 2014, from April on.
