I haven't followed this issue in any detail, but this was a pretty good rundown: https://thedailywtf.com/articles/equitf

I like the video about Social Security numbers, in particular.



  • The equifax handling is a bare minimum effort. I like how they blamed it on just a single IT guy. You'd think a place like that would have multiple processes in place for handling exposed services.
  • I also love how no one really knows if they were affected, thanks to the shitty way their checking website phones it in. Fake name? Fake number? We'll still give you a quasi-random result!
