What Is Known So Far About the Equifax Data Breach

Updated on

New York’s attorney general opened an investigation into the cyberattack against Equifax Inc., as Connecticut and other states also said they’d seek information about the breach that may have compromised the privacy of more than 140 million U.S. consumers.

More than 8 million New Yorkers were affected by the hack, according to Eric Schneiderman’s office, which said in a statement Friday that it sent a letter to the credit-reporting company seeking additional information.
