Home Depot hacked; private data from 10,000 workers leaked | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker


Private information for about 10,000 Home Depot employees has been leaked onto a website used by internet hackers, according to reporting by a number of tech industry news organizations.

The leak was accidental and was caused by a software vendor, reported Cybernews.

“A third-party software-as-a-service vendor inadvertently made public a small sample of Home Depot associates’ names, work email addresses and User IDs during testing of their systems,” a Home Depot spokesperson said, according to Cybernews.

In that statement, the huge, Vinings-based retailer warned its employees to beware of scams using the leaked data.

While this data is not highly sensitive, exposing only corporate IDs, names, and email addresses, it could be used by threat actors to conduct targeted “phishing” attacks against Home Depot employees, CyberNews said.

That kind of data can be used to launch waves of messages to unsuspecting consumers in an effort to get them to provide more sensitive information, such as Home Depot credentials, which could then be sold to others who might use the information to breach the company’s network and steal corporate data or deploy ransomware.

A hacker known as IntelBroker posted the data on the illicit forum BreachForums.

“In April 2024, Home Depot suffered a data breach that exposed the corporate information belonging to 10K employees of the company. Compromised data: full names and email addresses,” the hacker claimed, according to CyberNews.

The IntelBroker group is linked to a number of other hacking incidents, according to Bleeping Computer. Its previous hacking included theft of information from DC Health Link, an organization that administers the health care plans of U.S. House members, their staff, and their families, according to Bleeping Computer.

This is a developing story. Check back for more information later today.
