If you are half as busy as I am you may not have caught the news yet — that there has been another huge credit data breach — this time hackers broke into Home Depot’s in-store payment system. 

A Home Depot spokesman said of the breach, somewhat vaguely: “The breach may have affected any customer at Home Depot stores in the United States and Canada from April to early last week.”

So all of us that have Home Depot accounts should change our online passwords now!

And we should all, also, check out our free credit reports at least once a year just to make sure we don’t own thousands of dollars to a false account someone has set up in our names!

Here’s a link to a New York Time article on the Home Depot breach:

Have a great day & don’t forget the new iPhone is being announced today — at 1 p.m. EST!
