Equifax "secures" Argentina portal with "admin/admin"


A week after Equifax's massive 2017 data breach, researchers discovered that the company's Veraz online portal, designed to let Equifax's employees in Argentina manage credit report disputes mounted by that country's consumers, was left wide open, protected only by the user name and password combination admin/admin. The company took the portal offline shortly after being contacted by KrebsonSecurity.
