Equifax tweets fake phishing site to concerned customers

Did you hear the one about the major credit reporting agency that not only had two hacks this year that have impacted the majority of the population, but then they directed consumers to a fake phishing site?

Yeah, that one.

So at this point, I think it’s pretty clear that the Equifax breach will go down in infosec history not only as being one of the largest and most worrisome breaches but it will also appear on any lists of slow detection and worst incident response.

To add to their woes,  Massachusetts is suing them over the breach discovered in July, and that suit may be only the first with other states doing the same.
