The Sacramento Bee reports that credit monitoring giant Equifax has been hit by hackers who got away with the personal information of nearly one third of everyone in America.
Thanks to Equifax’s incompetence, hacker now have consumers’ names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and driver’s license numbers.
That’s just great. Of course Congress will protect Equifax from any sort of punishment, leaving this mess in the laps of consumers. Oh yes, and the next time you try to get a loan or a credit card, Exquifax will still screw you.
Welcome to America.
