If this year wasn’t already a rough one for Equifax, a data-reporting agency, in a statement yesterday, they say they were hacked again!
According to a report from the agency, people became victim to a Flash download that welcomed people on their website.
The latest data breach was reported by a tech site called Ars Technica and was mentioned by a security analyst who actually went to equifax.com and was redirected to another site when prompted to install the Flash download.
According to Ars Technica, Randy Abrams, the security analyst, was able to access Equifax’s website to report the false information on his credit report.
The company is offering consumers the option to sign up for credit monitoring and identity theft.
