    You can go to this website to see if your data was compromised.

    Its a major credit agency, EVERYONES info is compromised. I'd be surprised if anyone got a message saying they weren't compromised.

    Same... I also validated the link in that article... I thought it was weird that the website wasn't a part of the equifax domain even though it was branded as such... was able to get to the site provided via the equifax website, so it's a true subsidiary.

    You stumble about in a fruitless attempt at foraging.

    My co-worker wasn't impacted, surprisingly enough.

    It says I haven't been impacted but I don't believe them.

    I wonder how many Simucoins the hackers are gonna buy with all these people's info.

    Every year I get a notification from my university that my data may have been compromised.
    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.
