Equifax surges over 6% amid hacking scandal

Equifax Inc's shares soared over 6% on Thursday following the United States Justice Department's decision to charge four Chinese hackers over breaking into Equifax computer networks and embezzling the personal information of millions of Americans.

After DoJ's decision was revealed, China's Defense Ministry asked the US to reverse the hacking charges, urging it to correct its mistakes and avoid further damage to the bilateral relations.

Equifax stocks jumped 6.04% at 2:41 pm ET, going for $163.80 per share and reaching a fresh all-time high.
