While a large amount of information stolen in the recent Equifax hack might be up for sale somewhere on the dark web, scammers have also set up websites offering the data from the U.S. credit reporting agency.
Equifax alerted customers on September 7 that hackers had accessed its systems between mid-May and late July. The breach affects roughly 143 million U.S. consumers and involves names, social security numbers, dates of birth, addresses and, in some cases, driver’s license numbers, credit card numbers and dispute documents. Equifax has confirmed that an Apache Struts vulnerability was used in the attack.
