Well, It Looks Like Equifax Has Been Hacked Again

On Thursday, an Equifax spokesman told the news website Mic.com that the company's website was hacked and that its IT team had taken down the suspect webpage.

The news comes as Equifax Inc. continues to deal with the aftermath of a cyber breach earlier this year which allowed the personal information of 145.5 million Americans, and 8,000 Canadians, to be accessed or stolen.

An independent security analyst reportedly found on Wednesday that the company's website was attacked by hackers who attempted to install fraudulent Adobe Flash updates created to infect computers with malware, according to Ars Technica.

Several hours after Goodin's piece went live, Equifax disabled the page in question, saying it was doing so out of "an abundance of caution" while it investigated the claims.

The company said the problem is in its credit report assistance link on its website. "When it becomes available or we have more information to share, we will".

"As I tried to find my credit report on the Equifax website I clicked on an Equifax link and was redirected to a malicious URL", Abrahms wrote.
