As you may have heard Equifax Breach May Affect Canadians.
A security breach at credit-monitoring company Equifax Inc. that could affect up to 143 million people in the United States has also exposed “limited personal information” for an undisclosed number of Canadians.
Equifax said its core credit-reporting databases don’t appear to have been breached. Equifax did not indicate how many Canadians could be affected or in what way, other than to say it involved limited information of residents of Canada and Britain.
The company has established a website — www.equifaxsecurity2017.com
— where people can check to see whether their personal information may have been stolen. Consumers can also call 866-447-7559 for more information.
