(BBC News) The credit report provider Equifax has been accused of a fresh data security breach, this time affecting its Argentine operations.

Cyber-crime blogger Brian Krebs said that an online employee tool used in the country could be accessed by typing “admin” as both a login and password.

He added that this gave access to records that included thousands of customers’ national identity numbers.

Last week, the firm revealed a separate attack affecting millions in the US.
