Breaking: FTC To Investigate The Pwnage Of Equifax

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that in the words of Russell Peters, “someone is gonna get a hurt real bad.” I say that because Reuters is reporting that Equifax is going to get investigated in terms of that massive data breach by the FTC. How do we know this? The FTC in a unusual move actually said so:

“The FTC typically does not comment on ongoing investigations. However, in light of the intense public interest and the potential impact of this matter, I can confirm that FTC staff is investigating the Equifax data breach,” spokesman Peter Kaplan said in a brief email statement.

That’s not good if you’re Equifax. It pretty much means that you’re about to get slapped silly. And that’s even before the lawsuits and public floggings known as congressional hearings happen. Let’s hope the FTC does its job and punish these guys for this colossal mess that they have put millions of people in.
