Equifax said that, out of an abundance of caution, the Atlanta company has taken the affected page offline, and it's looking into the matter. According to Ars Technica, the now-deactivated section of Equifax's website redirected Abrams to the domain hxxp//:centerbluray.info, which tried to dupe him into downloading a fake, malware-ridden Flash update.

"We are aware of the situation identified on the equifax.com website in the credit report assistance link", said Equifax spokesman Wyatt Jefferies. 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.

Since news of Equifax's massive data breach broke last month, the company is facing investigations in Canada and the USA, as well as at least two proposed class actions filed in Canada.

Richard Smith, the company's former chief executive stepped down.

The company has taken part of its website offline after an independent analyst said the site may have been hacked.

Money expert Clark Howard says rather than waiting on Equifax to get itself together, consumers should be proactive and do what they can to protect themselves from identity fraud.

Equifax shot down reports on Thursday that its website was hacked, and instead put the blame on a third-party vendor that was compromised. Just last month Equifax announced that hackers broke into its servers and, over a period of three months, stole the private data of 145.5 million customers.

In what could be yet another incident of hacking, Equifax has taken down a web page because of suspicion that it had been manipulated.
