Equifax Sued by Mass. Over Breach, Says 100,000 Canadians Affected

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey filed a lawsuit against credit reporting firm Equifax Inc. following a breach that exposed the personal data of up to 143 million people, including 3 million in the state. Senator Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, called the breach a “nightmare” and said credit reporting companies should not profit from monitoring or freezing credit arising from the hack.
