Equifax Data Breach and CVE Violations
Click on the image
As reported by BBC News and Krebs on Security , the Argentina based Equifax internal website was identified as having a default username of "admin" and password of "admin" exposed to internal employees and available to anyone within Equifax Argentina that could guess the basic, default combination. The data behind the portal was sensitive to say the least. It contained disputes and claims against Equifax lodged by Argentinians (regardless of email, phone, or fax) and their DNI number (documento nacional de identidad) -- a non-private version of the United States Social Security Number (SSN). This raises high concerns around the policies and procedures Equifax used to store, process, and secure sensitive information internally as well as data lost during the breach earlier this month.
