Hackers steal data, credit card information of millions of Americans
Kredietbureau Equifax is hit by a cyber attack. Hackers have gained access to credit card information, home addresses, dates of birth, and other information of a possible 143 million Americans.
The hackers have also gained access to personal data of customers from Canada and the Uk, from Equifax. This applies to many fewer people.
In an internal investigation in late July discovered that Equifax that the personal data of millions of people by a cyber attack on the street were to lie. The company released that information Thursday to the outside.
