Equifax, one of the three major consumer reporting agencies, recently announced a breach impacting an estimated 143 million U.S. consumers. The information accessed includes names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some cases drivers’ license numbers. Credit card numbers for approximately 209,000 U.S. consumers were also accessed. Fraudsters could use the stolen data for years to come to open fraudulent accounts and obtain loans.
