Home Depot hit with a data breach affecting workers

Home Depot employees have been hit with a data breach. The breach, which affected the data of company staff, occurred through a slip-up by a third-party software-as-a-service (SaaS) vendor. As a result, that vendor’s database of some of Home Depot’s staff was hacked. About 10,000 employees had their names, work emails, and user names compromised. Home Depot was itself hit by a major data breach in 2014, which exposed the personal details of some 50 million customers.
