  • Equifax failed to patch security vulnerability in March -former CEO

The information stolen from Equifax included names, Social Security numbers, birth dates and addresses, the kind of information that could put people at risk for identity theft.

According to Smith's testimony, the Department of Homeland Security's Computer Emergency Readiness Team (CERT) sent Equifax a notice on 8 March about the flaw in certain versions of Apache Struts.

His prepared remarks were similar to those written for his appearance before the House Energy and Commerce Committee, where he claimed "full responsibility".

New findings show that an additional 2.5 million U.S. consumers have likely had their personal information exposed, bringing the total number up to 145.5 million people affected by the breach. "We also continue to work closely with our internal team and outside advisors to implement and accelerate long-term security improvements".

Elsewhere in the tape, Bryan added, " Frankie was a TV star, then he became a race vehicle driver, and a drummer in a rock band". The actor was involved in a serious vehicle accident in 2009 while competing as a professional race care driver.

Great, because we needed some more news to add to the EQUIFAX saga.

Now, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is making Equifax efx and its former CEO rue those words.

Equifax is trying to help consumers while also fixing its security systems, he said. "You're just required to notify everybody and say, 'So sorry, so sad, '" Rep. Joe Barton told Smith.

Smith stepped down last week amid the investigation, while indicating he would remain in a consulting capacity during the investigation, which includes a congressional hearing Tuesday. It was awarded Friday, three weeks after Equifax announced what Ars has described as "very possibly the worst leak of personal info ever".

She said she was devastated by the carnage and would cooperate with authorities as they struggle to get inside Paddock's mind. FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said he was surprised Paddock had provided so few clues, and that has proved challenging.

Equifax first notified the public of the security breach on September 7, though it said the unauthorized access is thought to have happened from May 13 to July 30, with Equifax's security team catching the hack on July 29.

The company previously said that around 400,000 United Kingdom consumers may have been caught up in the breach.

Smith said this particular sale opened after the second quarter earnings call and was in line with normal behavior.

Complete with a black top hat, white mustache, and monocle, Pennybags watched as Smith discussed the cybersecurity breach of his company's database (or community chest, if you will).
