  • Equifax nears deal to pay about $700 million to settle U.S. data breach probes- WSJ

Equifax Inc is poised to reach a roughly US$700 million deal to settle investigations into its massive data breach, in line with what the credit-reporting company previously set aside for the incident, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

The fund will be established to compensate the consumers for the harm they have suffered because of the breach. The exact amount of money Equifax will have to pay may change, depending on the number of consumer claims filed.

A settlement could be announced as early as Monday.

Equifax did not immediately respond to CNN Business' request for comment.

Illinois to defy Trump administration's abortion referral 'gag rule'
The family planning program serves about 4 million women a year, and many low-income women get basic health care from the clinics. According to NPR, Planned Parenthood says it will use "emergency funds" to continue to provide abortion referral services.

It prompted the resignation of CEO Richard Smith and several other executives, while chief information officer Jun Ying was charged for insider trading after liquidating his shares when the company discovered the breach. The compromised data included Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses, driver license numbers and credit card numbers.

Hackers leveraged a security flaw to steal customer data. The attackers were able to siphon data out of the Equifax computer systems for months while exploiting a software vulnerability that remained unpatched during the course of the hack.

It's been nearly two years since Equifax revealed that a data breach compromised the personal information of more than 143 million Americans.
