A massive batch of credit and debit card information that went on sale on a criminal Internet site Tuesday may be from Home Depot stores and could be linked to hackers previously responsible for breaches at Target and P.F. Chang's, security experts say.
The credit card information was first offered up for sale Tuesday on an underground site that traffics in stolen financial information, security author Brian Krebs reported on his blog, Krebsonsecurity.com.
The breach could have begun in late April or early May of this year, Krebs reported.
If that is true, this incident could dwarf the Target breach, in which credit and debit accounts were compromised over a three-week period.
