#CyberFLASH: UPDATE – Canadian cards from Home Depot attack appear to be for sale online


Canadian credit and debit cards compromised in a recent hacker attack on Home Depot appear to be available for sale online.

Security researcher Brian Krebs, who first reported the attack last week, said on Tuesday that the stolen data, which can be used to make fake cards, is available for sale online.
