Home Depot Confirms Data Breach in Order Confirmation SNAFU
Posted October 29, 2020
- Home Depot has exposed the private order confirmations of hundreds of Canadian consumers, containing names, physical addresses, email addresses, order details and partial credit-card information.
- After customers began reporting that they had received hundreds of emails from the home-improvement giant, each containing an order confirmation for a stranger, the company confirmed the issue.
- Home Depot was the subject of one of the most high-profile data breaches ever to come to light, with 50 million credit card numbers stolen and 53 million email addresses pilfered by unknown attackers in 2014.
