IF they ever figure out how to get to my Excel spreadsheet, stored on my encrypted USB thumb drive, kept in my desk drawer..... I'm screwed.
*LoL*


You might be OK if you catch them in the act. They may be using a screwdriver to break in with :rolleyes:

The company "Equifax", one of the big three major credit reporting agencies has been hacked.

A serious breach no doubt, said to impact some 143 million consumers, but what I find possibly even more interesting
Three Equifax Inc. senior executives sold shares worth almost $1.8 million in the days after the company discovered a security breach that may have compromised information on about 143 million U.S. consumers.

The trio had not yet been informed of the incident, the company said late Thursday.
Of course.... just a 1.8 million dollar coincidence.
Equifax shares tumbled as much as 18 percent
