After huge data breach, Equifax not telling all customers if they are affected

After revealing Thursday that a data breach had exposed personal information of 143 million Americans, Equifax Inc. asked customers to go to a special website to find out if they were one of the unfortunate victims.

When trying the site, however, many seem to be getting no actual response to that question.

Tests conducted in the MarketWatch office and by Twitter users suggest that the system installed on a website Equifax EFX, +0.94% set up specifically to respond to the massive breach is giving users three answers: Yes, probably not, or…no answer at all.

Five people in MarketWatch’s newsroom attempted to use the tool meant to determine if their data had been accessed, but four received absolutely no answer to that question.
