Equifax CEO resigns amid hacking outrage


The latest casualty at Equifax is long-time CEO Richard Smith, who's resigned in the company's "best interests." The credit-reporting company suffered one of history's biggest cyberattacks, with the Social Security numbers, birth dates and other information on 143 million Americans stolen. Suzanne Woolley, a personal finance writer for Bloomberg News, says the one thing consumers can really do to protect themselves from such breaches is to freeze their credit.
