Equifax has taken down a customer service web page after reports that it was serving up bogus Adobe Flash installation dialogs laden with malware, Reuters reports. On Wednesday, an independent security analyst found that part of the credit history site was under the control of hackers.

He says that, out of an abundance of caution, that Equifax has taken the affected page off-line, and is looking into the matter.

Equifax - whose multimillionaire CEO chose to set sail from the company weeks after the announcement that, under his watch, the information of 143 million Americans was obtained by hackers - was sending visitors of its website to the completely bogus software update.

Equifax's security protocols have been under scrutiny since September 7 when the company disclosed its systems had been breached between mid-May and late July.

The Atlanta-based company, which has faced seething criticism from consumers, regulators and lawmakers over its handling of the earlier breach, said it would provide more information as it becomes available. The hack has led to multiple federal and state investigations and the departure of the company's 12-year chief executive.
