September, 2017 - Equifax Data Breach

Consumer credit reporting bureau Equifax announced a major data breach affecting approximately 143 million Americans. The company said that from Mid-May through the end of July, criminals exploited an Equifax website vulnerability to access names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and in some cases driver's licenses. In addition, the company stated that about 209,000 Americans' credit card numbers were accessed, along with credit dispute documents with personally identifying information for 182,000 consumers. Equifax has set up a website to help consumers determine if their information was breached and, if so, to sign up for credit monitoring and identity theft protect offered by TrustedID, an Equifax subsidiary. Equifax will also mail notices to consumers whose credit card numbers of dispute documents were breached.
