From Wikipedia:

On September 7, 2017, Equifax announced a cybersecurity incident potentially impacting approximately 143 million U.S. consumers. The breach was originally discovered on July 29. The information accessed primarily includes names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver’s license numbers. In addition, credit card numbers for approximately 209,000 U.S. consumers, and certain dispute documents with personal identifying information for approximately 182,000 U.S. consumers, were accessed. Equifax did not disclose if PIN numbers and other sensitive information was compromised as well, nor did it explain its delay in reporting the breach (which it discovered in July) to the public. It was furthermore revealed that three Equifax executives had sold their company shares before the incident was made public.
