Equifax Security Breach: Should you be worried?

IMG_20170917_135256_060

Everyone should be thinking about suing Equifax, and I mean everyone – the government, its shareholders, and its customers.

Equifax, a credit-checking company that holds sensitive data belonging to over 140 million, didn’t just have one of the worst security breaches in American history; it also handled the situation like a drunk teenager trying to hide the aftermath of particularly destructive house party.

If you’re not up to speed, the company says it found out about the breach on July 29 and waited until the night of September 7 to drop an 8-K – a government filing meant to inform investors of a material event – announcing the matter.

In the meantime, the company’s CFO managed to sell shares (the stock is currently down 13% post-report). Finally, to add insult to injury, the company asked customers to check whether or not their information had been hacked by entering their social security numbers.

What’s more, as one lawyer warned, if customers access the site to check if their info was stolen, they may be accidentally agreeing to settle the matter through arbitration, rather than a class-action lawsuit.

“The key here, though, is that Mueller clearly already has enough information on these accounts – and their link to a potential crime to justify forcing [Facebook] to give up the info,” she said. “That means that he has uncovered a great deal of evidence through other avenues of Russian election interference.”

It also means that Mueller is no longer looking at Russia’s election interference from a strict counterintelligence standpoint – rather, he now believes he may be able to obtain enough evidence to charge specific foreign entities with a crime.

Former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti, now a partner at Thompson Coburn LLP, said that the revelationMueller obtained a search warrant for Facebook content “may be the biggest news in the case since the Manafort raid.”

The FBI conducted a predawn July raid on the home of Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, in late July. The bureau is reportedly investigating Manafort’s financial history and overseas business dealings as part of its probe into possible collusion between the campaign and Moscow.
