1399 olivicmic Who reset Equifax to factory defaults?
13893 AndromedaFire Unbelievable. When I see warnings about using 'password' as your actual password I always think who would be that stupid.
275 FreedomFromIgnorance After this Equifax should no longer be one of the big 3 credit bureaus. The negligence here is absolutely disgusting.
970 gnosis_carmot Sony : We were stupid enough to put all sorts of passwords into an unprotected Excel spreadsheet. Equifax : Pfft. Amateurs.

8162 [deleted] Equifax has no way of reaching a human and they haven't responded to my emails (tomorrow will mark 5 business days.) I should mention I am a paying customer who was billed as recently as 9/5 and I cannot access my account without re purchasing another product to verify with them. Fuck this company Edit- who knew just yesterday I'd be posting about hot cum and today have a post blow up about my shitty credit bureau! Reddit is so exciting!
415 rdewalt 15 years ago I was trying to get a mortgage on a house. There was a line item on my credit report from Equifax, and only on the Equifax copy. Bank was firm, that item was a deal killer. The item itself was bogus. An incorrect charge from a company I had not used in over a decade. Even getting a human being to get the procedures to contest the charge, was hell. I had to get a /special/ phone number AND a PIN number, in the MAIL. Called the number I had previous with the pin, and I was told that I used the wrong phone number, that VOIDED my pin and I would have to wait for a new one. Waited AGAIN and called the number with the pin. I was told I had to have a number off the EQUIFAX report, not the bank's report. Start again. Get the report (AND the credit check ding) and get a NEW number, AND pin number (because my old ones were now voided.) This is a MONTH into the process at this point. Call them up, get the numbers right, contest the charge, they tell me that I just need to get the company to fax in a retraction. I was smart, I asked for a new phone/pin on the phone, and got one to use for the next call. Track down the company, find out it hasn't existed in over a decade. Equifax says I need proof. How do you prove something doesn't exist? Yeah, I know. I ended up getting the Chamber of Commerce of the state the place was originally at. Got a "they no longer exist" note. Equifax wouldn't take it. I faxed it to them, they demanded the chamber of commerce fax it, not me. Fuck.. another day of phone calls and "No, I'm serious, I need you to fax that to them." and FINALLY, now /TWO/ months into the endeavor, got the item removed from my credit report. Too late for the bank, the housing complex that was being built had filled up, I lost my shot. The old Infocom/Douglas Adams game "Bureaucracy" went no where NEAR far enough to show just how evil paperwork can get. Fuck You Equifax. From what I was told (anecdotally, so I have no proof) To get an entry on my credit report, all I would have to do is call the right number up with my SSN, and a business ID, and state "He has taken a loan for $40,000" and that is that. No validation, no checking. Just Fuck The Consumer. I understand the need/utility of a Credit Agency, but if Equifax disappeared off the face of the earth, I would dance on their grave.
1085 SarcasticCarebear To put this in perspective, when I'm trying to browse reddit on my ipad using stolen wifi from someone's router, I try the 3 or 4 default router logins I know on all 5-12 routers I can pick up, even printers...I have never hacked into someone's wifi. I could have hacked Equifax. Equifax is dumber than stoners in apartment buildings and small businesses that don't let you use their wifi. Also the day I hack a printer's wifi is the day that printer starts spitting out 100 copies of dickbutt.
101 moose2332 This is why the US (and any country that doesn't have) need strong minimum requirements on ANY company that keeps information of people with strong punishments with people that fail to meet expectations. Edit: If you would like to contact ALL of your reps use sites like this http://act.commoncause.org/site/PageServer?pagename=sunlight_advocacy_list_page&_ga=2.232762911.1224467377.1505363745-1650036452.1505363745. If they get enough emails they may actually go through with it (even more so in contested elections and lower level reps where every vote counts more)
682 DatapawWolf How many accounts could you hack if you simply wrote a script that was fed login pages to try out the most common default username/password combinations? I have a feeling it would make most security researches sad.
