Emporia area not immune from Equifax security breach

Whether or not you've ever used Equifax, your personal information could have been compromised in the recent cyber attack against the major credit-reporting company.
 
Equifax said Thursday 143 million people are victims. Hackers were able to obtain names, social security numbers, birth dates, addresses and the numbers of some driver's licenses. Also compromised were some 209,000 credit card numbers. Emporia State Federal Credit Union president Angie Miller says her information was compromised and has some tips for monitoring your credit and bank statements.
 
 
 
Miller says it can be easy for hackers to do a lot with that kind of sensitive information. 
 
 
 
Equifax has set up a dedicated website to see if your information has been breached at equifaxsecurity2017.com or by calling 866-447-7559.
