Equifax revises Canadian breach numbers, increases to 19,000

Equifax originally said that roughly 8,000 Canadians had been affected by a major cybersecurity breach


  • It’s Me

    Originally estimated at 8,000, the Associated Press now reports that Equifax estimates that approximately 19,000 Canadians have been affected by the breach.

    I remember a time when “journalists” would fact check their stories instead of just copy-pasting from someone else’s article.
    In fact, originally it was estimated at 100,000. Then revised down to 8000 and now back up to 19K. They are clearly just guessing.
