+ - Home Depot investigating 'massive' hack->

Submitted by mpicpp
mpicpp (3454017) writes "Home Depot is investigating a hack that possibly exposed its customer payment information.

The company on Tuesday confirmed it has partnered with banks and law enforcement to look into "some unusual activity" relating to customers.

ndependent cybersecurity journalist Brian Krebs was the first to report this, saying "a massive new batch of stolen credit and debit cards" went for sale Tuesday in the black market online.

Krebs said hackers were possibly in Home Depot's computer systems from May until now. If that's true, this might be even larger than the three-week long Target (TGT) breach that affected 40 million debit and credit cards late last year, he noted."
