Equifax Data Breach Exposed Additional Info on Consumers



New documents that were given to lawmakers recently revealed that the massive Equifax data breach from last September actually exposed more consumer information than the public was previously aware of. At that time, Equifax stated that the compromised information had included names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses, some driver’s license numbers and some credit card numbers. CBS News has uncovered that there was actually more information including tax identification numbers, email addresses, phone numbers, as well as more intricate details like credit card expiration dates and issuing states for driver’s licenses. At this point, there is further speculation that Equifax was even more irresponsible in not revealing this additional information to consumers according to CBS News.
