Equifax Website hacked To Serve Fraudulent Ads To Visitors


Equifax may be suffering  from another hack as the website kept redirecting visitors to download a malicious software masquerading as a harmless Flash software.

Equifax, a credit monitoring and ID theft production firm last month announced a massive data breach in which more than half of the US population personal information were stolen.




 According to Ars Technica, visitors to the company's website are redirected to a malicious website displaying adware on their computer systems. The visitors are directed to a landing page serving a malicious software known as Adware Eorezo but actually looked like a harmless Flash software.

 Equifax took down the site as a spokesperson acknowledged the problem and assured that their I.T and Security teams were addressing the issue. 

"We are aware of the situation identified on the equifax.com website in the credit report assistance link. Our IT and Security teams are looking into the matter, and out of an abundance of caution have temporarily taken this page offline. When it becomes available or we have information to share, we will," the spokesperson said.
