Why the Equifax breach is very possibly the worst leak of personal info ever

I am including links to several articles surrounding the Equifax breach, and I cannot stress enough the magnitude of this breach based on the extremely sensitivity of the data hosted at Equifax.  Please be diligent in your credit monitoring practices.  Strongly consider freezing your credit through all three major bureaus to protect against identity theft.  Please take this breach seriously.
