In 1989, the US government decided to concentrate our most sensitive data in the hands of three giant finance corporations: Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax.

Seriously, did anything good happen during the Reagan/Bush administrations?

Anyway, this is a handy summary article about the Equifax breach and what you can do to protect your credit.
