Equifax Inc. says a breach of their system may affect 143 million people in the US. About 209,000 credit card numbers were also compromised, marking one of the worst breaches in US history due the scope and importance of information exposed.

The Equifax breach is different than other situations where data is compromised, due to the possibility that consumers may not be aware they are customers of the company. This occurs because Equifax obtains its data from credit card companies, retailers, banks and lenders which report on credit activity of individuals to credit reporting agencies.
