What do I need to know about a hacker who is in the US?
A hacker who used the code that infected the Equifax data breach was found living in the United States, according to a news release by the cybersecurity firm FireEye.
A U.S. government cybersecurity official told Reuters on Thursday that a person known as “anonymous” had been living in Florida for some time.
The official did not name the hacker or the person who had hired him.
FireEye has not said how many people he was living with or where he was, the official said.
Fireeye said the identity of the hacker was protected under a nondisclosure agreement, Reuters reported.
The FBI said it was investigating the incident and the Federal Bureau of Investigation was looking into the hack.
The hacker also used a stolen credit card to purchase goods and services from the retailer, according the FBI.
Fireey said he found the hacker in Florida after contacting the person he thought was him.
The company said it had been unable to verify the identity because the hacker had used multiple aliases.
Fire Eye did not disclose any further details on the hack or the individual it was trying to identify.
The Federal Reserve Board is investigating the hack and the U.N. Security Council is scheduled to hold a meeting on Thursday to discuss the matter, Reuters said.
The breach also exposed information from more than a dozen credit card companies, including Visa, Mastercard and American Express, which are among the largest in the world, the report said.
“We have been working closely with law enforcement on the investigation into this breach,” the Federal Reserve said in a statement on Thursday.
“The breach of this sensitive data is a serious matter that should prompt the fullest cooperation from the U,S.
We will provide all relevant information to the relevant authorities and will work with them to fully and transparently resolve this matter.”
official said it has asked the U in a report on Thursday for the identity and details of the alleged hacker, who is thought to be in his late 20s.
The U.K.’s Office for National Statistics said on Thursday it had verified that the U of N. national statistics office in London had not received a formal request for information from the FBI, but that it had contacted U.
Ns. offices to share any information they had.
