With news breaking that 53 million email addresses were stolen from Home Depot, the company has started reaching out to affected customers. And, despite the best intentions, that means it's also a dangerous time for you.
Scammers love the period just after a data breach because there's plenty of confusion. They can send out fake email claiming to be from the hacked company and plenty of people will click on links and download the scammer's attachments that can cause big trouble.
So naturally, when an email from Home Depot showed up in my inbox in September, I was understandably cautious, but that email proved to be real.
Then, just this morning, I received another email claiming to be from Home Depot, but it is actually legitimate?
