Home Depot Data Breach - Protect Yourself.

Dear CSCU Member:

CSCU strives to keep you informed of any pertinent industry information.
 
Home Depot:
 
Home Depot has confirmed that a data breach occurred on their payment data systems in their stores in the United States and Canada and dates back to April 2014.

Home Depot is offering free services including credit monitoring, identity monitoring, and an identity theft insurance policy for anyone who shopped at a store since April 2014. Currently,they believe online shopping was not impacted. For more information about these services, please visit https://homedepot.allclearid.com/.
 
According to Krebs on Security, a massive amount of credit and debit card numbers went on sale on the black market September 2nd. Some news outlets estimate that as many as 60 million debit and credit card accounts were compromised. In addition, reports have mentioned that this is a variant of the same malware that caused the Target breach, affecting 40 million card numbers, in 4Q 2013.
 
We will be working with our processor FIS as well as VISA and MasterCard in communicating additional information as it becomes available. CSCU recommends that both our credit unions and their members closely monitor their accounts for suspicious transactions. In addition, member credit unions should be on the lookout for the VISA CAMS and/or MasterCard ADC alerts. Lastly, if your credit union offers alerts, encourage your members to sign up.
