Home Depot Settles Data Breach Lawsuit for $17.5M

Home Depot, a Georgia-based home improvement store, will pay a $17.5 million settlement to 46 states including Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana regarding a 2014 data breach, officials announced Tuesday.

The breach exposed the payment card information of approximately 40 million Home Depot consumers nationwide, according to a release. 

Hackers gained access to The Home Depot's network and deployed malware on the company's self-checkout point-of-sale system during the breach, the release states. Hackers were able to obtain self-checkout lane users' payment card information between April 10, 2014 and Sept. 13, 2014.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost says Ohio will collect $656,210 and some change through the settlement. Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron says Kentucky will receive just over $188,570. Indiana will receive $520,962, according to Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill.
