Equifax breach worsens, sparking more concerns about consumers’ data

Equifax has confirmed that the massive data breach it announced last year is larger than previously thought, affecting an additional 2.4 million U.S. consumers. New details of the breach were announced by the credit reporting company Thursday, taking the total number of victims to 147.9 million. The company says the additional consumers only had their names and part of their driver’s license numbers stolen, unlike the original 145.5 million Americans who had their Social Security numbers impacted.
