"Equifax had nine working weeks in which to apply the patch."

So that they finger pointing has just made you look stupid Equifax.

"The company also appears to have suffered another data breach, this time in Argentina where its Bryan Krebs reports “an online portal designed to let Equifax employees in Argentina manage credit report disputes from consumers in that country was wide open, protected by perhaps the most easy-to-guess password combination ever: “admin/admin.”

You would have thought that after a massive security breach they would be checking everything they have including their underwear. More lessons are going to be learnt at Equifax I think.

Admin / admin you couldn't make this up.
