Yep, a firm developed a security patch for the Equifax software system months before the data breach. The panjandrums at Equifax neglected to install the security patch. General doofusness and criminal neglect strike again.

Quote:
"The Equifax data compromise was due to (Equifax') failure to install the security updates provided in a timely manner," The Apache Foundation, which oversees the widely-used open source software, said in a statement Thursday.
