Mozart malware caused Home depot hack

Posted on

Federal security agencies warned retailers Wednesday that a previously unseen malicious software program they are calling Mozart was used in the attack on Home Depot earlier this year. The warnings reportedly came in a report by the Department of Homeland Security that drew on findings gathered by the Secret Service, which is investigating the breach. Sources said the software appeared to be customized for the home improvement retailer’s systems.
