Equifax takes down web page over concerns of new hack

Equifax has temporarily taken down one of its web pages amid reports that another part of its website had been hacked.

Hackers reportedly altered Equifax’s credit report assistance page so that it would send users malicious software disguised as Adobe Flash.

Equifax Canada spokesman Tom Carroll says that, out of an abundance of caution, that Equifax has taken the affected page off-line, and is looking into the matter.

The company says it will provide more information as it becomes available.
