Unfortunately another major security breach has occurred. It took a few months for Equifax to figure out the depth and breadth of the breach. And I think several months more as well.
Equifax has stepped forward and admitted the mistake. They are now offering free credit monitoring to anyone who wants it. That is a great offering from them. Click/Copy this link https://www.equifaxsecurity2017.com/potential-impact/ and find out if this breach has involved you.
This breach was because of a website application, that is all that has been released so far.
In the meantime take a few minutes and see if this breach has impacted you. Might not be a bad idea to sign up for credit monitoring.
Knowing is Key.
