The irony was that the vulnerability was only detected when someone upgraded an Expired CA for a part of the set intended to monitor encrypt and monitor your data loss and immediately realized something was up. Approximately 10 month prior to the violation, the expiration date of the certification meant that encryption was not verified during this time.
Then Equifax would block multiple web sites from which queries were made to stop the outbreak. At least it could help explaining why it took Equifax until September 7 to uncover the break in the networks, even though he knew about it for week.

Equifax was plundered in 2017 when rogues took advantage of a Apache Struts 2 exploit for which there was a fix that had not yet been deployed by the company's IT team. Consequently, the cyber-intruders with sensible biographical information made themselves about 150 million Americans, 15 million Britons and others of it.

It is our determination to take care of the information of British people, wherever they may be. At Equifax Ltd., we showed serious disrespect for our clients and the information they were given, resulting in today's fines. So far, no fines have been imposed on the agent in her home country.
