According to a recent news release (via HD corporate), there definitely was a data breach that affected Home Depot’s payment data systems. If you paid with a credit card or debit card at any US or Canadian Home Depot store location, check your statements for potentially fraudulent activity.
The security breach has been officially confirmed.
There’s no evidence that PIN numbers associated with debit cards have been compromised.
Customers of course won’t be held liable for fraudulent charges.
Home Depot is offering free ID protection and credit monitoring services to any customer that used a payment card at any Home Depot store between April 2014 and whenever the breach or security hole was patched up.
