Hacked Credit Agency Equifax 'Hit By Separate Intrusion In March'

We strongly encourage anyone who thinks they may be affected by the Equifax breach to log onto the company's website or call the consumer information line. And Equifax faces multiple federal investigations on the breach as well as over reports that executives sold an unusual amount stock before the July hack was disclosed.

The earlier breach was serious enough for the company to notify customers, and bring in the information security firm Mandiant to investigate.

Schneiderman also wants to know whether the companies will consider waiving the fees for consumer credit freezes in light of the breach. "The two events are not related". The Democratic governor announced Monday that he's directed the state Department of Financial Services to issue new rules requiring credit reporting agencies to register in NY for the first time and to comply with the state's cyber security standards.

Equifax said on Friday that data on up to 400,000 Britons was stolen in the hack because it was stored in the United States.

According to Bloomberg, the department is looking at sales by Equifax Chief Financial Officer John Gamble, President of US Information Solutions Joseph Loughran, and President of Workforce Solutions Rodolfo Ploder.

Equifax announced on 7 September that he had been targeted by a major cyber attack over the summer.

Federal investigations: Equifax is being investigated by both the Department of Justice and the FBI.

The supervisory agency of the credit has indicated to The canadian Press that it is working with the office of the Commissioner for protection of privacy of Canada.

A wide range of sensitive and valuable information was exposed in the colossal Equifax data breach, including addresses, date of birth, driving license details and social security numbers.

Company executives are also under scrutiny, after it was found that three Equifax executives sold shares worth a combined $1.8 million just a few days after the company discovered the breach. The flaw had been discovered and fixed by Apache in March, but Equifax had not applied the patch to its own systems by May.
