breathtaking arrogance, exceeded only by stunning incompetence by Equifax

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/0...omers_exposed/

Global credit reporting agency Equifax admitted today it suffered a massive breach of security that could affect almost half of the US population.

In a statement, the biz confessed that hackers managed to get access to some of its internal data in mid-May by exploiting a vulnerable website application. They remained on the system until they were discovered on July 29. Equifax has called in the FBI and is in contact with regulators in other countries about the case.

CEO Richard Smith said that the company's core consumer and commercial credit reporting databases were untouched only the names, social security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver's license numbers of 143 million Americans were exposed.

I don't believe this trade was innocent.
