Where’s consumer protection when you need it? That is what 143 million consumers are asking themselves after Equifax’s troubling announcement. The data breach or cyber-attack apparently impacts a huge portion of the U.S. The credit-reporting company said hackers exploited a U.S. web vulnerability and gained unauthorized access to consumer data from mid-May through July. The sensitive consumer data includes names, birth dates, Social Security numbers, addresses as well as some driver’s license numbers. Hackers also got access to credit card information for approximately 209,000 consumers.
