Equifax Inc. has been hacked. If you've ever applied for any credit, then Equifax has your information, and that means YOU may have been hacked. 

Equifax is calling the hack a 'cybersecurity incident' that could impact approximately 143 million U.S. consumers.

Stolen information includes names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver’s license numbers, and credit card numbers for approximately 209,000 U.S. consumers and certain dispute documents with personal identifying information for about 182,000 U.S. consumers.

An investigation into the hacking is ongoing with an independent cyber security firm.

“This is clearly a disappointing event for our company and one that strikes at the heart of who we are and what we do. I apologize to consumers and our business customers for the concern and frustration this causes,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Richard F. Smith. “We pride ourselves on being a leader in managing and protecting data, and we are conducting a thorough review of our overall security operations. We also are focused on consumer protection and have developed a comprehensive portfolio of services to support all U.S. consumers, regardless of whether they were impacted by this incident.”
