Equifax Breach Alert - September 14, 2017
In the recent weeks, various news headlines reported Equifax's cyber security incident that potentially impacted approximately 143 million U.S. consumers. According to Equifax, criminals exploited a U.S. website application vulnerability to gain access to certain files. Based on their investigation, the unauthorized access occurred from mid-May through July 2017. The information accessed primarily includes names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, street addresses, and, in some instances, driver's license numbers. Equifax has found no evidence of unauthorized activity on any of the company's core consumer or commercial credit reporting databases, ACRO, or Workforce Solutions, including the The Work Number payroll data. While the issue has been contained, they continue to notify their consumers, business partners and consumers.
Equifax has developed a process to help consumers determine if their personal information may have been impacted and for steps to protect their information. This process is available by visiting Equifax's website at www.equifaxsecurity2017.com. In addition, Equifax has established a dedicated call center at 866-447-7559 to assist consumers. The call center is open every day (including weekends) from 7:00 a.m. - 1:00 a.m. Eastern time.
