You undoubtedly heard about the massive hack that Equifax experienced a couple of weeks ago—a breach so large it impacted 143 million Americans. Well, it seems like Equifax did NOT learn their lesson, because they have been directing customers to a fake website to check their information.
Turns out some clever Curtis set up a fake site to mimic the very real website Equifax created, put they swapped the address. The secure website is equifaxsecurity2017.com and the fake website is securityequifax2017.com.
Whoever runs the Twitter account for the company did not do their due diligence before tweeting out the incorrect link…eight times, according to Mashable.
Now there is no word on whether data inputted into the fake website was kept or discarded, but once customers put in their information, a pop up appeared on the screen telling them they were bamboozled, that the page was fake, and the Equifax should host the website at Equifax.com.
And apparently a lot of the links just Rick Rolled people, which is kind of amazing.
