The credit reporting service covered by Equifax after the data breach is so backed up that I can't even apply until Monday!

What's to say their enrollment web site isn't vulnerable?

I have a son who works in network security. This thing is really, really bad!

What a bunch of crap. These guys are paid to handle sensitive information . That's what they do as a business. They failed miserably imo.

Fortunately, we've had our credit frozen since April after having 10 days worth of mail stolen from our local post office while they were supposed to be holding it while we were on vacation to Arizona. You can't trust anybody anymore...ANYBODY!

"Well, at least three senior execs dumped stock after the breach but before it was made public."


Hey: aren't people supposed to do time for stuff like that?

Their CISO deactivated his LinkedIn account. Imagine that!?!

I bet his inbox there was colorful.

"What's to say their enrollment web site isn't vulnerable?"

Exactly. So you want me to load my name and SSN into your cheesy website to find out if my personal info, which, by the way, I didn't give you -- you took it upon yourselves to collect and store it on your own, was hacked from your database, obviously maintained by incompetent apes?

How stupid do you think we are?

I hope every man, woman, and swamp creature in Congress are the first on the list to get their accounts swiped.

And if the execs who dumped their stock aren't behind bars in three months, we seriously need to consider starting the reset.

Oh -- BTW. If you enroll in Equifax's credit monitoring scam that they are so graciously providing free of charge (for one year), you waive your right to participate in any further class action suit against them.

Of course. Network and secirity ertifications and top-shelf colleagues don't mean doodly-squat when a person can't perform to their job description.

They have done an about face on that one but you have to contact them and have the requirement waived within 30 days.

It's finally dawning on us: These agencies are in the business of COLLECTING your data.
They are not in the business of safeguarding and securing it.

Willie: Don't, DO NOT, get me started on the US Post Office. I don't have the time to type up all of the incompetent, illiterate, moronic dealings that I have had with them. Not just one time, or one location, but multiple times over decades.

NoSoapRadio: "How stupid do you think we are?"
Somebody else, please take this one and bail me out.
How do you want to break this down? As an individual, or a forum, or a gender, or a society, or a country, or a species, etc etc etc?

Your question actually sounds like the title of a new, never ending topic for the forum.
Or an ongoing daily subtitle for numerous other topics.

"These agencies are in the business of COLLECTING your data."

This is precisely what most all phone apps do too.

Sure--the typical app does some cool things for you and make things convenient, easier and faster. But it collects and reports on your patterns of life as well. Information like this means more money in the pockets of big business.

"Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death." The Dead Kennedys were musical PROPHETS, I tellya.

"Congress needs to pass legislation that demands the harshest penalty imaginable for such hackers."

No, they need to pass a law hitting companies that don't safeguard data properly with huge fines, say $10,000 per each individual piece of data stolen, and then strictly enforce it.

Then this crap would stop immediately.

I'm not sure anyone can safeguard data properly...I mean, the government itself has been hit at all levels...who isn't vulnerable. I go after the hackers and make it hurt really badly.

This might prove helpful. I was not at all ready to sign up for Equifax's monitoring service:

It was a very busy day at Experian.

I was pulled out of class to go back to the call center. In addition to the Equifax thing, we had two call centers evacuated due to Irma.

Too much excitement for an old man like me...
