Equifax Was Aware of Cybersecurity Weaknesses for Years, Senate Report Says

A December 2018 report from the House of Representatives’ Oversight and Government Reform Committee Republicans blasted the company for its poor security practices, and the new U.S. Senate report does that once again, while also providing some more details on Equifax’ failures regarding the incident. 
According to the report (PDF), Equifax was aware of security weaknesses in its systems for two years, but failed to properly address them. The critical vulnerability that led to the data breach was patched only months after being publicly reported.
