... Early this morning, credit card information collected from what seems to be 2,400+ Home Depot stores around the world, was sold online by Eastern European hackers.....

 More simply put, credit cards and debit cards are “pull” transactions. Bitcoin payments, like cash payments, are “push” transactions. .... Sure, the particular Bitcoin address that you use will forever be stored on the blockchain; however, your private key is never revealed during the course of proper Bitcoin use....

...The revelation comes from Brian Krebs from famous security blog Krebsonsecurity http://krebsonsecurity.com/2014/09/banks-credit-card-breach-at-home-depot/...

There is only one way to find out.  I think we should all ask them if they will accept Bitcoin and take more of an interest in keeping their customers safe from these enormous scams before they have a chance to happen again.  Might as well add Target and all the other listed in the article.
