(Update) – The Home Depot confirmed Monday that its payment data systems have been breached, and that the breach could potentially impact customers using debit or credit cards at its U.S. and Canadian stores. It says there is no evidence that debit personal identification numbers were compromised.
The Home Depot also says there is no evidence that the breach has impacted customers who shopped online at HomeDepot.com.
The nation's number one home improvement retail chain, Home Depot, is working with law enforcement to investigate a hack that may have exposed customer payment information at all 2,200 of its U.S. stores.
If the breach is confirmed, the Home Depot theft will be even larger than the 3-week long Target breach that affected 40 million debit and credit cards late last year.
