Home Depot announced a data breach earlier this month but provided few details. On Thursday, the company announced the breach may have affected as many as 56 million payment cards.
The breach is being blamed on malware that was present in the store's registers from April to September, though the malicious software was confirmed as eliminated on Thursday, reports Business Insider. During these five vulnerable months, tens of millions of unique payment card credentials were at risk, and the customers holding those cards may want answers.
