The company has taken part of its website offline after an independent analyst said the site may have been hacked.
Embattled Equifax Inc. has moved one of its webpages offline as the company looks into whether hackers tried to breach its systems this week.

At issue is a consumer-facing website used for credit-report assistance.

Several hours after Goodin's piece went live, Equifax disabled the page in question, saying it was doing so out of "an abundance of caution" while it investigated the claims. "When it becomes available or we have more information to share, we will".
Already in the midst of the worst year ever for a credit-reporting agency, Equifax said Thursday that it was the victim of another cyberattack, this time involving a fake Flash downloader that greeted some people on its website.
The breach led to the retirement of Equifax chief executive Richard Smith, who has remained as a consultant to the company during the investigation. In many cases, even more personal data was exposed, including driver's license and credit card numbers.
Last month, Equifax revealed that the hackers exploited a US website application vulnerability to gain access to certain files, which included names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, mailing addresses, and driver's license numbers. Equifax first disclosed that breach in September.
