By now, most Americans have heard of the breach of over 143 million U.S. consumer’s financial data to hackers earlier this month. A well-published vulnerability in Apache Struts (CVE-2017-5638) was not patched for months in Equifax applications.
As we continue to survey the damage to Equifax, credit card companies, and the financial security of hundreds of millions of American consumers, two things become crystal clear:
1) This was a preventable IT Security tragedy
2) This could happen to anyone, at any time without protection
