The Equifax hack could be worse than we thought
The Equifax hack may have exposed more personal information of customers than previously thought.
An Equifax spokeswoman told the Journal the company complied with regulatory requirements and that they didn’t consider the “insignificant” number of email addresses lost to be sensitive because they’re often publicly accessible. Similarly, the company downplayed the new revelations to CNN Money:
"Equifax spokesperson Meredith Griffanti told CNNMoney Friday that the original list of vulnerable personal information was never intended to represent the full list of potentiality exposed information."
