    Equifax: Worse Than You Knew, Says WSJ

    Consumer rating agency Equifax’s (EFX) massive security breach last year, announced September 8th, turns out to have been more massive than originally disclosed by the company, according to a report this evening by The Wall Street Journal’s AnnaMaria Andriotis. Citing documents submitted to the Senate’s banking committee, and reviewed by the Journal, Andriotis writes that in addition to compromising social security numbers and addresses, personal information such as tax identification numbers and email addresses and driver’s license issue dates and states was swept up in the breach. 145.5 million people were affected by the breach overall, Equifax had disclosed, but it is unclear how many of them may have been affected at this more extensive level.

A company spokesperson told WSJ that the company complied with "applicable notification requirements in the disclosure process" and that the tax ID numbers "were generally housed in the same field” as Social Security numbers.
