Wang Qian, Xu Ke, Liu Lei, and Wu Zhiyong from the Chinese Army’s 54th Research Institute are facing nine charges including wire fraud, computer fraud, and economic espionage. The Justice Department is charging them for their involvement in a data breach hack into Equifax back in 2017. Data pertaining to over 150 million Americans was accessed over the course of three months, including names, social security numbers, addresses, and credit card information. Since Equifax is one of the three main credit bureaus, people are unable to opt out of the company having their information. Almost $600 million will be paid to affected consumers and attorney generals after all the claims have been reviewed.
