Canadians among individuals affected by Equifax cybersecurity breach

Company issued statement, said consumer and commercial credit databases were unaffected


  • Isn’t that site just for US people to sign up for security checks? I don’t think Canadians can check online right now.

  • Mitchell Leitman

    I tried to check and it asked for the last 6 digits of my social SECURITY number, not SIN.

  • Mike Brunet

    Interesting/disappointing that Equifax holds Canadian data but verification service is only for US citizens. Where are our Canadian legislators here in protecting Canadians information rights. This is your next story (I hope) Mobilesyrup.

    All these executives selling their shares in the company after the breach was discovered makes me sick!
    Now that this news is out, Joe Investor is the one who suffers with drop in the share price!!

    … Equifax spokesperson Ines Gutzmer told Bloomberg in an email statement that the three “had no knowledge that an intrusion had occurred at the time.”

    Yeah righ! Expect everyone to believe that???

      What else did you expect from corporate America…

    Hidden in the terms and conditions of that free credit monitoring: if you sign up, you waive your rights to legal action and class action lawsuits.

    Classy move, Equifax. Now we know why they took so long to disclose the breach, they were hammering that in.

    Do they keep your data after you cancel? I had an account there a year ago, but cancelled.
