Is Equafax doing enough to compensate those exposed to the hack?

Opening Argument

143 million equafax customes suffered a major personal information exposure that now can lead to major identity theft issues.  I am thinking that Equafax is legally liable and these customers should seek significant damages.  Now, what does Equafax offer? One year of free monitoring service, which actually limits their ability to sue in the future.  Wow, that is a sleazy thing to do. They exposed their customer security information, and customers have to worry about it now for the rest of their lives - and actually probably now need more than ever a monitoring service. Sounds like a conflict of interest to me.
a nice article below.

  • No, they should be supply longer terms of free monitoring.

  • @joecavalry, yep.  It's ridiculous that after such a major issue on their side they only offer 1 year of free monitoring. They should be liable for what happened that they didn't sufficiently protect the data
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible

  • Its really not acceptable what happened.  Although their head IT people left the very next day after the announcement and equafax offered this ludicrous 12 months offer, there should be a much larger settlement for those impacted.
  • @joecavalry, that's right. They really should.  I suspect that they will be forced to offer more, but them playing these games with only offering a year is a sign of bad faith
