“Less than 24 hours after Equifax confirmed that it was affected by a massive data breach that saw hackers steal social security numbers and other personal information of nearly 143 million people, the firm now faces a multibillion dollar class action lawsuit. Two victims in Oregon, affected by the breach — Mary McHill from Portland, and Brook Reinhard from Eugene — have filed a national class action lawsuit. ‘Plaintiffs file this complaint as a national class action on behalf of over 140 million consumers across the country harmed by Equifax’s failure to adequately protect their credit and personal information,’ the complaint reads, Cyberscoop reported.” (09/09/17)
