    Home Depot says 56 million card details likely stolen in breach

    23 MINUTES AGO

    (Reuters) - Home improvement retailer Home Depot Inc said 56 million card details were likely stolen in a data breach between April and September at its stores in the United States and Canada.

    Criminals used unique, custom-built malware to evade detection in the breach, the company said.

    Home Depot's payment security systems had been breached and customers' details who shopped at its stores as far back as April were exposed, the company confirmed last week.

    The malware has been eliminated from its U.S. and Canadian networks, the company said.
