Home Depot Allegedly Hacked, Thousands of Credits Cards Stolen

Project Casting

Home Depot was reportedly hacked by the same hackers that hacked Target.

If you recently used your credit card to build a set for your next audition, you better check your bank statements.

According to recent reports, Home Depot has been a victim of the same type of security threat that affected Target several months ago. Thousands of credit card numbers were and placed online for sale. It is time to check your bank statements.

KrebsOnSecurity claims that an investigation into an alleged Home Depot security breach identified a variant of “Black POS”, the same malware that affected Target point-of-sale systems. According to the site, credit card numbers stolen from Home Depot have already turned up for sale on black market sites. []

Home Depot has not confirmed the hack, but it appears to be that Home Depot has investigated into the issue. If there is any unusual charges on your account, call your bank and block or cancel your cards and order replacements.

Following the recent Nude Celeb Leaks, there is a lot uncertainty about how safe your private information is online.
