another of those......"just a matter o' time"

yeah, let's build databases upon......that's a really smart move.....only for those that have "ability"

in just over 100 yrs+, we've gone from farming to faggotism....

what a waste o' flesh at the expense of population growth...

some guy had it right.....he just did it wrong (can't say that "name" anymore)

You really have no idea about the extracurricular activities of those 100 yrs+ farmers.

It took them 100 yrs+ to get 'Farmers only .com'

It was only a matter of time.

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

FOREVER.

And Equifax should be held responsible for any unfortunate outcome which can be linked to this.

Equifax CFO and other execs dumped their stock before the news hit.

There's around 300 million in the country. If you throw out the children who don't have credit, it's probably close to 2/3 of the nation's adults. Maybe 3/4 or more of the nation's credit worthy.

Put it this way, it will include, at a minimum, every American that has borrowed money or had a credit card at any point within the last 7 years.

The execs that sold their stock should be prosecuted to the fullest extent. That is the very definition of insider trading.

This happened in July, their stock barely took a hit. An investor friend sent me an urgent text last night telling me to short them now!! I'm gonna be pissed if it tanks today because I didn't.

And I just got in short, it's tanking quick pre-market. Dropped almost 20% from yesterday.

They are going to jail if this is true. No doubt insider trading here.

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.
