    Posted on September 9, 2017 by pcwrt in News, Security.

    Big news that Equifax leaked personal info of 143 million Americans. In the wake of the news, people were directed to check their status at the website www.equifaxsecurity2017.com.

    An article on TNW claimed that the cybersecurity industry is a billion dollar scam. Now that’s something new. Something I’ve never thought of. Something sensational.
