SECURITY ALERTS ARE A JOKE

Why the Equifax breach is very possibly the worst leak of personal info ever Consumers’ most sensitive data is now in the open and will remain so for years to come

SSN Equifax Breach

Equifax is one of the three major American firms that offers credit monitoring services, along with TransUnion and Experian, which also lost 15 million Social Security Numbers of T-Mobile customers in the fall of 2015.

2017 143 Million Social Security Numbers Stolen

Hackers have stolen the personal details of 143 million people, including their names, social security numbers, birth dates, and home addresses, according to credit monitoring firm Equifax, which disclosed the breach on Thursday.

For perspective, that’s nearly half of all Americans.

The First Problem is Equifax said there was  No Evidence of Unauthorized Access to Core Consumer or Commercial Credit Reporting Databases – OMG

so . . . if the 143 million people’s data wasn’t protected in their CORE DATABASE where the hell was that info stored??? on Pluto?

if YOUR INFORMATION WASN’T IN THEIR CORE  then the magnitude of their incompetence demands a class action suit.

But Equifax will offer Free Identity Theft Protection and Credit File Monitoring to All U.S. Consumers

Want to Know If Your SSN Was Included in the Equifax Breach? Good Luck!

AAAAAAH  . . . FINALLY

The Monopoly guy has gone to Washington. A person dressed in a black top hat and bushy white mustache, occasionally putting on a monocle or dabbing forehead sweat with giant paper money, sat in the audience of the Senate Banking Committee hearing on the Equifax data breach on Wednesday. Former Equifax CEO Richard Smith didn’t seem to notice. The person was dressed to resemble the character Rich Uncle Pennybags from the classic board game.

@Public_Citizen sent the Monopoly man to the #Equifax hearing to send a message: FORCED ARBITRATION GIVES @EQUIFAX A MONOPOLY OVER OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM

Equifax ran code for *years* that executed s/w from abandoned domains, including a malware server since last Fall.

On Thursday, security researchers at security vendor Malwarebytes Corp. identified a small piece of code on Equifax’s website that connected users to the Netflame.cc internet domain, which was the source of the malicious software. That domain once was used by Digital River Inc., an e-commerce and digital-marketing vendor, for a now-defunct web-analytics product called Fireclick, Digital River said. But the domain’s registration was released in October 2016, three months after Digital River ended support for Fireclick as part of an “ongoing domain cleanup,” said Christopher Rence, the company’s chief information and risk officer. That domain was registered Nov. 15 to an individual with an address listed southeast of Bangkok, according to internet records. On Thursday, the Netflame.cc domain was serving up a variety of malicious software, including fraudulent online surveys, adware and software designed to steal online-banking credentials, said Jerome Segura, an analyst with Malwarebytes. It is common for scammers to be on the lookout for soon-to-expire web domains so they can snatch them up and use them to deliver malicious software, he said. Mr. Segura also discovered the Central America site of TransUnion, an Equifax competitor, connecting to the Netflame.cc domain, he said.
