I happened to catch this CRUCIAL piece of data — i.e., only affects those that have filed a dispute — during today’s Congressional hearing. From MarketWatch.com. Click image to access video and blog at MarketWatch.com.

This, i.e., that the 143 MILLION affected by the now infamous Equifax data breach were those that were in their DISPUTE database, was news to I.

Did you know that?

IF that is TRUE, then only those that have filed a dispute with Equifax would be at risk — and NOT all of us. Moreover, it would be those that filed a dispute by CREATING an account at Equifax. I have never done that. So, in theory I am golden.

I, however, do not trust or believe Equifax on this matter. As was correctly pointed out during the Congressional hearing, Equifax has admitted that 143 MILLION Equifax ‘customers’ were affected. That is half the U.S. population. HIGHLY unlikely that all of them would have filed disputes.

So, I for one do NOT buy this. But, I thought you might find it useful.

Google it.

Also Google ‘Apache Struts‘ which was where the vulnerability was.
