Criminals gained access to the private information held by Equifax on 143 million Americans from May through July 2017. The data includes names, birthdays, drivers license numbers, and social security numbers, sufficing to open new accounts in the victims names. Equifax hid this data breach for over a month while three executives dumped shares. Also, Equifax information site about the breach attempts to trick victims into giving up their rights to sue or to be part of a class action lawsuit and the information site looks extremely insecure itself.
