Apache Mounts Strong Defense, Equifax Retreats

By David Jones

The Apache Software Foundation has responded to accusations that the massive data breach Equifax disclosed last week resulted from a flaw in Apache’s open source code. One of the largest financial data breaches in U.S. history, it exposed names, addresses, Social Security Numbers, birth dates, driver’s license numbers and other sensitive information belonging to 143 million U.S. consumers. The attackers also accessed credit card data for about 209,000 consumers and credit dispute information for about 182,000 consumers.
