After a vulnerability in Apache Struts led to serious breaches at Equifax and laid the credit reporting agency low last autumn, organisations should have scrambled to bolster security.
The massive data breach that compromised the data of 147.9 million Equifax customers last year has cost the company more than £175 million in related expenses.
During the aftermath of the massive data breach which compromised the data of nearly 150 million consumers, Equifax notified some people using inaccurate letters.
The US SEC has charged former Equifax executive Jun Ying with insider trading saying he sold stock based on confidential company information enabling him to avoid more than US$ 117,000 (£83,944) in losses.
A remote code execution flaw, dubbed Spring Break, affects various Pivotal Spring projects and could allow an attacker to run arbitrary commands on any machine running applications built using Spring Data REST.
Equifax has once again bumped up the estimated number of US consumers affected by its massive breach - now saying that data on 147.9 million was somehow exposed.
