Equifax may have been hacked again

Equifax - the credit-reporting company that exposed the sensitive data of over 140 million people earlier this year - took one of its customer help web pages offline earlier today in response to reports that site was infecting visitors' computers with malware. Equifax says it took the page down "out of an abundance of caution" as it investigates. "When it becomes available or we have more information to share, we will". "We are aware of the situation", a spokesman said.

Independent security analyst Randy Abrams claims that the company's website was compromised for several hours on October 11 and was redirecting customers to a fake Adobe Flash update download. The website is now down for maintenance.

The assistance page, which could be used to obtain a copy of one's credit report, was replaced with a message claiming that the site was under maintenance after security researcher Randy Abrams discovered the problem. "You've got to be kidding me", he recalled thinking.

Equifax's security protocols have been under scrutiny since September 7 when the company disclosed its systems had been breached between mid-May and late July.

The incident comes just over a month after Equifax disclosed a massive data breach in which hackers stole the personal information of more than 145 million USA consumers.
