Corboy & Demetrio Equifax Lawsuit Update

New Equifax Advisory

Former Equifax CEO Richard F. Smith testified on October 3, 2017, before the U.S. House Committee on Energy and Commerce about both the breach and the company’s response, claiming the breach was a result of both human error and technological error.  You can watch a recording of Smith’s testimony.

Smith admitted in his testimony that the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security warned Equifax on March 8, 2017, of the need to fix a vulnerability in its website.  Smith had no good explanation why Equifax did not fix that vulnerability within the 48 hours required by Equifax policy. Read the prepared written testimony of Richard F. Smith.

We recommend that consumers who log onto and are told by Equifax that their credit “is not impacted” by the breach should consider legal representation in the class-action lawsuit. The reason:  Equifax cannot be trusted.

On October 2, Equifax admitted that it underestimated the number of consumers impacted by the breach after Mandiant,a cybersecurity firm retained by Equifax to investigate the breach, found that 2.5 million more U.S. consumers were potentially affected than originally estimated, bringing the total to 145.5 million. Read the full Chicago Tribune story.
