Equifax reveals 2.4M additional records stolen in 2017 hack

Consumer credit reporting agency Equifax Inc. revealed Thursday that an additional 2.4 million people had their data stolen in their infamous 2017 hack — that is, on top of the 143 million consumer records it previously believed had been stolen….Veridium Ltd. chief technology officer John Callahan told SiliconANGLE that “as we thought, the Equifax breach was way worse than we all knew. When it comes to data breaches, few compare to the damage that has and likely will continue to come from information leaked. And yet it still seems that many people aren’t taking away the right message from this attack — if they’re taking one away at all.”
