NEW YORK >> Equifax has taken down one of its web pages after reports that another part of its website had been hacked as well.

The news comes as Equifax Inc. continues to deal with the aftermath of hackers breaking into its system earlier this year which allowed the personal information of 145.5 million Americans to be accessed or stolen.
