Multiple banks say they are seeing evidence that Home Depot stores may be the source of a massive new batch of stolen credit and debit cards that went on sale this morning in the cybercrime underground. Home Depot says that it is working with banks and law enforcement agencies to investigate reports of suspicious activity.

 

Update: 1:50 p.m. ET: Several banks contacted by this reporter said they believe this breach may extend back to late April or early May 2014. If that is accurate — and if even a majority of Home Depot stores were compromised — this breach could be many times larger than Target, which had 40 million credit and debit cards stolen over a three-week period.

Not again! I think I may have used my card at Home Depot! I am going back to cash only and getting it directly from the bank.

I checked my credit card statements and the last purchase I made there was in Feb. so I hope I am okay.

I am going to go look now, I am pretty sure I was there this summer at some point. Not fun! Thanks for the heads up about the Home Depot breach.

Since this type of breach is becoming more prevalent, we have to constantly be on our guard using credit and debit cards anywhere.

I look at all of my transactions every other day. I know this is probably overkill but I can spare a few minutes here and there to check.

Update

 

Seems nearly all Home Depot stores hit. Article has a link to all zip codes affected.

 

New data gathered from the cybercrime underground suggests that the apparent credit and debit card breach at Home Depot involves nearly all of the company’s stores across the nation.

Home Depot, four days into a massive and highly complex cyber investigation led by the FBI and security giants like Symantec, chief executive Frank Blake took time out from his speech at Goldman Sachs in New York to address the issue. In the talk, Blake admitted the $122 billion company still didn’t know what was going on, four months after the cyber breach occurred.

“We found out about a potential data breach on Tuesday morning, this past Tuesday morning. Since then our internal teams and third parties have been working around the clock to find the breach,” Blake said.
