Understanding Known Security Vulnerabilities and Data Breaches

Known security vulnerabilities are usually weaknesses in software, applications, or systems that have been identified but not yet fixed. Such vulnerabilities could be exploited by cybercriminals to gain unauthorised access to sensitive data.

Data breaches involving known security vulnerabilities can have severe consequences, including identity theft, financial losses, and compromised personal information.

If you suspect you have been a victim of a data breach, the first step is to confirm your exposure. Companies that experience breaches typically notify affected individuals. Keep an eye on communication from the breached company or relevant authorities. To strengthen your compensation claim, gather all relevant evidence. This includes any communication received from the breached company, proof of losses incurred due to the breach, and documentation of any steps taken to mitigate potential harm (such as credit monitoring services).

At The Data Leak Lawyers, we understand the distress caused by data breaches resulting from known security vulnerabilities. Our dedicated team of legal experts is committed to helping you navigate the legal landscape, advocating for your rights, and pursuing the compensation you deserve.

Equifax Compensation: Lessons from the 2017 Data Breach

In 2017, Equifax, one of the major credit reporting agencies, fell victim to a massive data breach that exposed the personal information of approximately 147 million people. The breach occurred due to a known security vulnerability in the Apache Struts web application framework.

Equifax’s apparent failure to promptly patch the vulnerability resulted in a significant breach that had far-reaching consequences. The aftermath of the Equifax breach underscored the importance of timely security updates and the potential liability for companies that neglect known security vulnerabilities.

The company has faced legal actions to compensate victims, highlighting the significance of data breach compensation. We represent a number of those who are claiming compensation.
