143M SSNs. I hope not only are people fired for this, they receive scarlett letters in the IT security industry forever.

FOREVER.

now you know why I hide the USD in various formations.....the wishbone is outdated 03-wink

always one step forward....never two backwards....

I am starting to wonder about getting gold bars and mason jars of twenties to hide in my floorboards.

Also, seeds and .22s. Cause that'll be the real currency when North Korea invades.

My wife noted how we have this which is huge relevant news. We have hurricanes. We have health care issues. And yet CNN is all Trump rants, all the time. Nothing but Trump.

Well, it said mine "may" have been impacted which I took as a definitive "yes" I was impacted so I thought it wise to let other folks know a couple of steps they could take to help avoid anything bad from coming of it. Of course, the best thing to do is monitor credit/bank accounts and act quickly if anything suspect occurs.

Yea, that is as close as their legal department would allow them to say to "we done f'ed up."

I will be paying attention and throwing down a lawsuit if anything happens.

I am legitimately angry about this.

Sneaky ba$tards.....

Equifax hack victims could be disqualifying themselves from class-action claims

snippit:
Quote:As Equifax consumers attempt to check whether they are among the 143 million individuals whose information has been compromised in a massive cyber-attack, the consumer credit reporting agency has included a clause on its TrustedID portal that could disqualify victims from joining a class-action suit.

In response to the hack, Equifax has established a website allowing individuals to check whether their personal information has been impacted. However, by using the portal and joining TrustedID, it appears from the terms of service that people are implicitly agreeing to a clause that bars them from taking part in any class action against the company: “Please read this entire section carefully because it affects your legal rights by requiring arbitration of disputes (except as set forth below) and a waiver of the ability to bring or participate in a class action, class arbitration, or other representative action. Arbitration provides a quick and cost effective mechanism for resolving disputes, but you should be aware that it also limits your rights to discovery and appeal.” The caveat was first reported by TechCrunch Opens a New Window. .

On Friday, Equifax updated its terms of service allowing consumers to opt out of this arbitration clause, but that requires them to “notify Equifax in writing within 30 days of the date that you first accept this agreement on the site,” according to The Washington Post.

Damnit. This is the 2nd freaking time this has happened to me. The 1st time was the big OPM hack a couple years ago.

Yep, the idiots made it a two step process though. I started the process but will not complete the process after reading the above info. I imagine lots of other folks will do the same. Besides, I've put the ALERT on my credit files and after all the other hacks that have occurred I have to have at least two or three other monitoring services activated.
