Equifax accidentally serves 'fake flash player update' malware which installs adware and possibly spyware onto those who don't realize it's fake.

There's that unflaggingly mighty Galtian efficiency for which private industry is so universally renowned.

Did anyone else get a letter from AT&T informing them of the Equifax breach?

We don't have any accounts with AT&T for anything, but I did used to work there.

Why would AT&T think they had to tell me about it? It's just a really generic notification telling me it happened and what to do, but it doesn't say anything about what it might have to do with them.

We're going to put a freeze on our credit. Don't need any new credit anyway, not for the foreseeable future.
