Experian Sold Consumer Data to ID Theft Service

 

The article will explain more of the detail, but the nuts and bolts are Experian purchased a company who was reselling data and did not verify that companies dealings, leading to an undeground website having almost full access to all U.S. Social Security numbers and other information. It took the Secret Service to stop it. The article link is here, http://krebsonsecurity.com/2013/10/experian-sold-consumer-data-to-id-theft-service/.
