Equifax, former CEO reveal more details about the devastating breach


Mandiant has concluded the forensic part of its Equifax breach investigation, and the results are as follows:

  • 2.5 million additional US consumers were potentially impacted, bringing the total to 145.5 million
  • The initial estimate of some 100,000 Canadian citizens being impacted was incorrect: in the end, the information of some 8,000 Canadian consumers was compromised, as well as credit card information of some of them
  • The number of affected UK consumers has still not been revealed, as UK regulators are still analyzing the results provided by Equifax.
