If you had any sort of credit with any merchant as of May 2017 this breach has affected you. Protect yourself!
In May of 2017, Equifax was breached by hackers and the personal information of over 143 Million Americans was exposed. The breach was unknown to Equifax until the end of July 2017 and was not reported until September 2017.
The CEO Retired as a result – with a $90M payday. Good job!
Equifax too big to fail? You bet.
