“Home Depot could be the latest major company to have customer credit card data siphoned off and sold online. Security researcher Brian Krebs writes that multiple banks have said the chain might be the source of a batch of credit and debit cards currently being sold in an online black market. ‘I can confirm we are looking into some unusual activity and we are working with our banking partners and law enforcement to investigate,’ said Home Depot spokesperson Paula Drake in a statement to Krebs, saying that it was too early to tell whether there had in fact been a breach.”
