Ars Technica: Equifax website borked again, this time to redirect to fake Flash update

Ars Technica, in our, “You’ve-Got-to-Be-Kidding-Me” Department: Equifax website borked again, this time to redirect to fake Flash update. “In May credit reporting service Equifax’s website was breached by attackers who eventually made off with Social Security numbers, names, and a dizzying amount of other details for some 145.5 million US consumers. For several hours on Wednesday, and again early Thursday morning, the site was maliciously manipulated again, this time to deliver fraudulent Adobe Flash updates, which when clicked, infected visitors’ computers with adware that was detected by only three of 65 antivirus providers.” Can someone please just shut this company down. This is insane.
