While most of the country was watching Hurricane Irma over the weekend, another major story broke. Equifax, one of the country’s three major credit reporting bureaus, announced a data breach that could potentially impact well over 100 million U.S. customers.

According to an Equifax press release, “criminals exploited a U.S. website application vulnerability to gain access to certain files,” adding that the breach took place between May and July 2017.

The company said the information leaked mainly included  names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver’s license numbers.  In addition, credit card numbers for approximately 209,000 U.S. consumers, and certain dispute documents with personal identifying information for approximately 182,000 U.S. consumers, were accessed.”

The company has established a page on its website for customers to see if their personal information may have been compromised in the hack. Go here and follow the steps to see if you are impacted, and also find out how to register for credit file monitoring and identity theft protection. The period to enroll in the monitoring ends on Nov. 21, 2017, according to the company’s website.
