Experian again!

This report comes from Krebs on Security

On Dec. 23, 2022, KrebsOnSecurity alerted big-three consumer credit reporting bureau Experian that identity thieves had worked out how to bypass its security and access any consumerís full credit report ó armed with nothing more than a personís name, address, date of birth, and Social Security number. Experian fixed the glitch, but remained silent about the incident for a month. This week, however, Experian acknowledged that the security failure persisted for nearly seven weeks, between Nov. 9, 2022 and Dec. 26, 2022.
It seems hackers and other malicious actors have easier access to our credit reports than we do.

Experian is a pathetic, wretched, awful excuse of a company.

This is a recording.
