October 22nd Cybersecurity Update – Experian

The major credit bureau Experian has sold sensitive consumer data to an identity theft service. That’s according to a lengthy investigation by security reporter Brian Krebs. Members of a Vietnamese identity theft group posed as a US private investigator. They tricked Experian into selling them social security numbers, birthdays and financial information on millions of Americans. The group then resold this information to underground cyber crime sites, like super get dot info.
