BREAKING: Equifax Pwnage Affected 100K Canadians

The number of Canadians affected by the Equifax hack has finally been disclosed. The number is 100,000. Equifax says that they will be notified and be offered credit protection. Though they said that in the US and also forced people who took this offer to give up their right to sue. It will be interesting to see if that happens in Canada. In any case, the info that is out in the wild includes names, address, SIN and “limited cases” of credit card numbers.

Charming.

Hopefully the Privacy Commissioner of Canada who are conducting an investigation into this pwnage slaps these idiots silly for exposing so many people to the horrors of identity theft and who knows what else.
