Equifax says it's looking into another possible hack

A vendor that Equifax uses to measure website performance, like visits and hits, was "serving malicious content", Salcines said.

Company spokesman Tom Carroll did not respond to direct questions about any potential breach to Equifax Canada's website or the number of Canadian or American Equifax customers that may have been affected.

Equifax Canada says its USA parent company's website has temporarily taken down one of its customer services pages amid reports that another part of its website had been hacked.

At issue is a consumer-facing website used for credit-report assistance.

Equifax shares dropped as much as 3.5 percent Thursday after it said it has disabled one of its customer help online pages and is investigating another possible cyberbreach.

The latest reports of a hack also come on the heels of the Equifax signing a multi-million dollar deal with the IRS to assist with taxpayer and personal identity verification services.

The company has taken part of its website offline after an independent analyst said the site may have been hacked. However, since the breach was reported earlier this year, Equifax has proven again and again that it isn't even capable of that.

"Our IT and Security teams are looking into this matter, and out of an abundance of caution have temporarily taken this page offline", his statement added. Equifax announced the massive security breach last month.

Richard Smith, the company's former chief executive stepped down.

In what could be yet another incident of hacking, Equifax has taken down a web page because of suspicion that it had been manipulated.
