53m Email Addresses Stolen from Home Depot

The home improvement giant had to admit that hackers stole 53 million email addresses, aside from obtaining payment card information over a 5-month data breach earlier in 2014.

According to the world’s largest DIY home retailer, the hackers breached the Home Depot’s network using a vendor’s username and password. A couple months ago, Home Depot admitted that 56 million credit and debit card numbers were compromised during a 5-month period of the hacker attack. According to the company, the stolen files with customers’ email addresses carried no passwords, payment card information or other sensitive personal data. However, customers in the United States and Canada were warned of possible phishing scams. The Atlanta-based company continues to notify the affected customers.

It said that the hackers stole data using malware installed on self-checkout systems in the United States and Canada. The retailer is currently working with cyber security experts, trying to enhance protections against future attacks.

It is known that Home Depot data leak became the latest in a series of other large-scale breaches on American companies. Target and JP Morgan also suffered, the former facing 40 million cards compromised, and the latter facing the attack ongoing for many months without the bank’s knowledge. The first breach in a series forced financial institutions, retailers and card companies to increase security by adopting the microchips in American credit and debit cards, which are supposed to be more secure. Home Depot promised to activate chip-enabled checkout terminals at all American stores by the end of 2014. The leak of personal details affected the finances of Home Depot. The company’s outlook for its fiscal 2014 includes estimates for the cost to investigate the accident and other expenses.

No avatarAre the CIO's/ CTO's of these companies taken to task over these breaches? Are they sacked? Or do we have a revolving door policy?

Typical script;

IT guy to his boss "We need to shore up XYZ because we may face a system compromise"
Boss "We don't have pre-approved budget for this, no can do"

But later....

Cotporate America "We have suffered blah blah blah attack over a period of x months. We are releasing details of this only now because we have been monitoring the situation to determine blah, blah, blah"


Corporate America to Company Secretary and IT Head x months earlier before news release

CEO "Company Secretary what's it going to cost us from a litigation standpoint?"

Company Secretary "Well if we can get Marketing Communications to spin a positive story...."

And so it goes.....

Rockman avatarI recall after Barnes and noble was hacked awhile back they found that the weakest point was the swipey thingy the customer uses; its a lot safer if the cashier does it at the cash register so B and N removed that and had cashiers do it.

To my horror I see that b and n has the swipers back for customers to use .

So what does that say about corporations ? Means they don t and will never care about keeping users credit cards safe.

Swipers need to be removed and never brought back . .
