What’s so despicable about this is how Equifax , one of three credit agencies  that we are forced to provide this information to if we want to get credit, failed to protect the data. It’s not as if they didn’t have warnings. This is the third time that their computers were hacked over the past two years. You wonder who's managing their security.
But it gets worse. When they discovered that there was a theft of all their data, they waited six weeks before informing anyone. That’s a long time and it allowed the thieves to take their data, package it, and go to the underground web and sell it.
