At least 143 million people have been victimized in a sweeping security breach. The credit-reporting bureau Equifax was hit by hackers earlier this year. The Better Business Bureau is offering some advice if you have been impacted by the breach. The stolen information includes names, mailing addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses. BBB spokesman Shellie Kreter says freezing your credit is one of the more reliable ways to protect yourself from identity thieves from establishing new lines of credit in your name.



Equifax has set up a website just to deal with the breach and the public's questions. You can find that link at "equifaxsecurity2017.com."
