The hardware retail store Home Depot may be the latest U.S. security breach victim, where credit and debit card information went for sale on the internet's black cybersecurity market.Home Depot has not confirmed the data breach, which was  first reported Tuesday on the cybersecurity website Krebs on Security.

3. In more potentially-embarrassing hacking news, Apple released a statement on the hacking of female celebrities' iCloud accounts that resulted in nude photos posted on the internet.
