US credit reporting bureau Equifax has released details of a massive breach that exposed social security numbers and other important credit details for 143 million Americans. This is ludicrous, one of the most imoprtant services this company should provide is protecting data - especially since most people don't even realize theeir credit worthiness and personal info is being tracked by this company.
Especailly reprehensible is that the breach occured for over 2 months and was discovered and stopped more than a month ago, but only became public today. In the meantime, 3 top executives sold off stock in the company.
You can see if you are victim of the breach by visiting here; though you have to endure a dubious, lenghty enrollment program.
