I still remember the day Equifax announced its mega breach. 

And not only because of the astounding announcement and what happened behind the scenes at Equifax.

But on that day, in addition to visiting the Equifax breach website, I also quickly nosed around the main Equifax website.

And I was surprised that every video on its page required me to use Adobe's Flash Player, as you can see below from my screenshots.

Maybe Equifax was unaware that Adobe Flash was at one point named the most frequently exploited product. 

Well, another example of Adobe Flash Player security issues was just discovered by security researcher Randy Abrams.

He focuses on finding malware and it looks like he found some while visiting the main Equifax website.

ARS Technica has a nice write-up on the bogus Flash Player re-direct links he discovered. They took him to an adware site.

And this was more than a drive-by, because he was able to replicate the issue and the bogus re-direct.

At this point it remains unclear if this was an Equifax issue or perhaps tied to some third-party web related vendor.
