Did Equifax execs sell stock before data breach news broke because they knew? U.S. Senators want to know

Two influential members of the U.S. Senate today demanded answers from Equifax on the recent massive data breach that affected 143 million Americans.

The senators want to kmow whether U.S. government agency records were compromised in the huge hack.

They also want to know if three Equifax execs who dumped a bunch of company stock the month before the breach may have known about the big breach before the rest of America did.

Reuters reports:

Senator Orrin Hatch, who chairs the Finance Committee, and ranking Democrat Ron Wyden, also demanded that Equifax disclose when three executives who sold stock in the company in August were first notified of the data breach.
