The consumer credit reporting company said its security teams are looking into another possible breach barely one month after it disclosed a hack that left exposed the personal information of 145.5 million people.

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.

The news site Ars Technica, citing an independent security analyst, reported visitors to the Equifax site were being tricked into downloading an "adware" program which, when installed, delivers unwanted marketing messages.

Equifax did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

At issue is a consumer-facing website used for credit-report assistance. "When it becomes available or we have more information to share, we will".

On Monday, Khloe , 33, and Kylie , 20, goofed off together on Snapchat, showing off their matching blonde locks. Another added, "You can see that baby bump!" "Nowadays you can't escape anything", she said at the event.

Having already leaked the personal information of half the people in the entire United States, you might think things have gotten pretty much as bad as they can get for Equifax.

"As I tried to find my credit report on the Equifax website I clicked on an Equifax link and was redirected to a malicious URL", Abrahms wrote.

Somehow, the worst credit-card-data breach in US history just got worse.

Last month, Equifax revealed that the hackers exploited a US website application vulnerability to gain access to certain files, which included names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, mailing addresses, and driver's license numbers.

Earlier this month, Equifax said its outside security consultant had concluded an investigation into the breach, which it first detected in July.
