#Equifax Latest: Company Been Sending Consumers To a Fake Phishing Site for Almost Two Weeks: To get you to enrol in ‘ Identity Protection Insurance ‘ on the pretence of updating people on the ‘ CyberSecurity ‘ breach #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Sept.21: For nearly two weeks, the company’s official Twitter account has been directing users to a fake lookalike website #AceNewsDesk reports

Published on September 20, 2017 at 10:05AM: Gizmodo Report: After announcing the breach, Equifax directed its customers to equifaxsecurity2017.com, a website where they can enroll in identity theft protection services and find updates about how Equifax is handing the cybersecurity incident………” But the decision to create “equifaxsecurity2017” in the first place was monumentally stupid………The URL is long and it doesn’t look very official — that means it’s going to be very easy to emulate……..To illustrate how idiotic Equifax’s decision was, developer Nick Sweeting created a fake website of his own: securityequifax2017.com. (He simply switched the words “security” and “equifax” around.)…….As if to demonstrate Sweeting’s point, Equifax appears to have been itself duped by the fake URL………The company has directed users to Sweeting’s fake site sporadically over the past two weeks……..Gizmodo found eight tweets containing the fake URL dating back to September 9th: Investigation is proceeding ….More updates soon ……#AceNewsDesk reports are provided by Sterling Publishing & Media News
