Equifax website infected with malware


In October 2017, the Equifax website was infected by malware that redirected visitors to a page that delivered fraudulent Adobe Flash updates that infected visitors' computers with adware. The company took down the affected pages after it was notified. Investigation showed that the malicious redirects were due to a third-party vendor's "fireclick.js" script, which also infected the website belonging to fellow credit reporting bureau TransUnion.
