In May 2017, the website of renowned credit reporting service Equifax was hacked and sensitive, private data of around 150 million of its US customers was hacked due to an old Apache flaw. The data hacked included names, Social Security numbers and other personal info. The company received backlash from left right and center over its inefficiency in safeguarding consumers’ data. However, with the passage of time, consumers’ trust was regained as they started to rely upon Equifax again. It seems that Equifax’s trying time is not over as yet as the site has been hacked again.
