Home Depot confirms months-long hack


CNN Money - (International) Home Depot representatives confirmed September 8 that the company's payment systems were breached as early as April 2014 and the attack went unnoticed until September 2 when banking institutions reported unusual activity connected to debit and credit card data from the company's stores in the U.S. and Canada. The company is working with the U.S. Secret Service to determine the scope of the breach and has implemented additional security measures at its stores.
