Home Depot reports another insider breach

Home Depot seems to be having a rough year with dishonest employees.

In February, this site reported that some employees had been charged with stealing  co-workers’ personal information. Over 1200 were notified in California.

Now Home Depot has notified the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office that between May 7 – May 21, an employee was accessing – and sharing with third parties – tool rental customers’ names, addresses, phone numbers, dates of birth, credit card numbers and expiration dates.

According to Home Depot, less than 500 customers’ information was shared with others, but the employee also obtained access to 30,000 other customers’ accounts.

Customers are being offered free services with AllClear ID.
