In what could be yet another incident of hacking, Equifax has taken down a web page because of suspicion that it had been manipulated.
The site, one of the embattled company’s customer service offerings, was delivering fraudulent updates for Adobe Flash, which – when clicked – would infect a visitor’s computer with unwanted software, according to a security analyst and the technology web site Ars Technica.
Equifax officials on Thursday confirmed that it had taken down the web page, but did not confirm the rest of the report or offer other details.
“We are aware of the situation identified on the equifax.com website in the credit report assistance link,” the company said. “Our IT and Security teams are looking into this matter, and out of an abundance of caution have temporarily taken this page offline.”
