Equifax: Umm, actually hackers stole records of 15.2 million Brits, not 400,000

Equifax has confirmed that a recent data breach exposed a file containing 15.2 million UK personal information records.

On 10 October 2017, the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) confirmed the Equifax data breach disclosed in September 2017 actually compromised 15.2 million UK records.

That’s considerably more than 400,000, the number of consumers living in the United Kingdom which Equifax originally thought had been affected by the security incident.
