More trouble for Equifax.
According to arstechnica.com , Equifax has taken down part of their website due to evidence indicating that it had been redirecting users to a malicious link that encouraged the downloading of malware. When tested, only 3 of 65 antivirus protection services were able to detect the downloaded malware: Panda, Symantec, and Webroot. This comes on the heels of last week’s news that 2.5 million more users information had been affected than previously reported. Shares are down more than 3.5% today as Equifax keeps getting hit with bad news. This new malware incident delivers another blow to Equifax who announced that users information had been hacked in May, exposing over 145 Million people’s personal information. If you want further specifics on the hack, head on over to arstechnica – they have a fully fleshed out account of what users may have faced.
