Home Depot

In 2014, Home Depot experienced a major security breach that compromised over 50 million credit cards. Cybercriminals exploited a third-party vendor’s credentials to access the network and install malware on point-of-sale systems. As customers swiped their credit cards at physical stores, their data was clandestinely captured by the attackers, posing serious privacy and financial risks.
