Equifax says it's looking into another possible hack

Equifax has taken down a webpage that offered credit report assistance, a spokesperson told Gizmodo.

An independent security analyst found part of the company's website was under the control of attackers trying to install fraudulent, malware-infected Adobe Flash updates, the website Ars Technica reported. Abrams determined that when those updates were clicked, adware would infect a visitor's computer.

Abrams, who says he encountered the spyware three times on Wednesday, posted a video warning people what to look out for.

A day after the suspected hack, multiple outlets are reporting that the malicious pop up has disappeared from Equifax's website.

Equifax said it discovered the breach on July 29, and believe the unauthorized access occurred from mid-May through July.

The embattled company remains under heavy scrutiny after waiting almost four months to publicly announce that they had been hacked. The latest claims reveal that after one of the largest data breaches ever, Equifax still may not have learned its lesson about providing proper security for its customers.

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, continued to press Equifax officials Thursday to provide additional details on what led to the company's recent security breach and how it has responded to the hack, which exposed more than 143 million Americans' personal information.
