Giant Equifax data breach: 143 million people could be affected

Equifax, one of the “Big Three” credit reporting companies, suffered a major data breach in late July 2017. The breach (made public today) has compromised the accounts of roughly 143 million Americans. In addition to consumers’ credit scores, “loans, loan payments and credit cards, as well as information on everything from child support payments, credit limits, missed rent and utilities payments, addresses and employer history” were obtained by the cyber-criminals.
