So Equifax was hacked, with data about 140m+ Americans stolen. That includes full names, SSNs, addresses, and sometimes drivers license numbers. Practically all of the unchangeable information that one would need to steal your identity. Don't worry about their executives tho. They sold millions of dollars worth of shares before disclosing the information. So they'll be fine. http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-...sonal-data-of-143-million-people-equifax-says They also setup a website to check if your data was stolen (probably was since if you count children and others without credit histories, 143m is most people in the US). https://www.equifaxsecurity2017.com/potential-impact/ They're also offering a one year free credit monitoring to the affected. Apparently on the stipulation that you give up your right to sue them.
