Equifax Go Boom

Hackers have had access to Equifax' networks now for three months from May to July 2017. The information lost contains full names, addresses, birth dates, social security and driver's license numbers for up to 143 million people.

Additionally Equifax has lost credit card numbers and payment details for over 209,000 of its customers.

It took Equifax five weeks to disclose the breach, during which time three senior executives sold almost $2 million worth of company stock before the news broke.
