Equifax says data breach could potentially affect 143 million US consumers  

Equifax, which supplies credit information and other information services, said Thursday that a data breach could have potentially affected 143 million consumers in the United States.

The population of the U.S. was about 324 million in 2017, according to Census Bureau estimates, which means the Equifax incident affects a huge portion of the country.

Equifax said it discovered the breach on July 29. "Criminals exploited a U.S. website application vulnerability to gain access to certain files," the company said.

SEC filings show that three Equifax executives – Chief Financial Officer John Gamble Jr., workforce solutions president Rodolfo Ploder and U.S. information solutions president Joseph Loughran – sold nearly $2 million in shares in the company days after the cyberattack was discovered. It was unclear whether their share sales had anything to do with the breach.

Equifax said in a statement that the three executives sold a "small percentage" of their shares on Tuesday, August 1, and Wednesday, August 2, adding they "had no knowledge that an intrusion had occurred at the time they sold their shares."

The SEC declined to comment on the share sales.

I'm betting it's self inflicted. The PR statement is carefully using the word “breach”.


Notes from Shipp's presentation: Who is “they”??

Shadow or Secret Government is Intelligence Agencies while Deep State SUPPORTS these agencies (mostly financial)

Shadow Government primary players: CIA/CFR, NSA connected to Silicon Valley, And MSM. They control/influence all 3 branches of the visible government. Note that CIA was created WITHOUT Congressional approval.

Secondary players include FBI, NGA, NGTC, NRO, DIA (torture program), DOS, DHS, DNI – 17 Agencies, and JSOC – President's private army.

The Deep State, the system behind Shadow Government consists of the MIC, MICC intelligence contractors, defense contractors, Federal Reserve, IMF/World Bank, MIC lobbyists, foreign lobbyists, central banks, and a connection between the Treasury and Wall Street offshore accounts.

Estimated 4,800,000 Americans hold some sort of security clearance. They have signed a secrecy agreement and can go to jail for speaking about what they are involved with.

Primary MIC players are Lockheed Martin (tracks all USPS mail, airport biometrics, info tracking for CIA and NSA), Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Booz Allen Hamilton, Raytheon, and General Dynamics. One trillion USD/year is sent to these folks. All go through the Congressional Armed Services Committee headed by......John McCain.

Intelligence Industrial Complex consists of Leidos Holdings, SAIC, CACI, CSRA, Booz Allen. They are contracted, without public accountability by CIA, NSA, NRO, and NGA. Booz Allen rakes in 50 billion USD/yr. These companies do 80% of the top secret work for the government.
