Equifax Laptop Stolen

Equifax is reporting one of their laptop computers has been stolen -- fortunately, though, it appears that it does not contain any actual credit report information.

Apparently a laptop containing Equifax employee names and Social Security numbers was stolen from a worker traveling on a train in Europe. Apparently the theft, which took place on May 29, may affect nearly all of Equifaxes 2,500 U.S.-based employees.

Given that they are a credit reporting agency, and these are their employees, one suspects that at the very least they can offer them a year or two of their credit monitoring service, if they don't already.
