Just a heads up. I read this this morning, if you go to Equifax website and sign up to see if your info was part of the breach you are waiving your right to the class action law suit.
I read a different article on this that was on facebook.

Is it possible that this is a false flag to get people to enroll in their identity monitoring program? get half the US to enroll at $10.00 a month....that's a nice chunk of change
except that they are now offering that service free of charge to everyone, because of this event..

Back on the first page of this thread, I advised everyone who is required to file tax returns to file them as soon as possible.
Here is an article in "Market Watch" advising the same.
As I said, you heard it here (Yeah, ATS!):
Hmmm, maybe for once the IRS could be proactive and assist the US taxpayer. It seems logical to me that the IRS could get a roster of the affected SSNs and flag them to i,mediately isolate any anomolies in the filing, like asking for the return to be sent to a different address or bank account number. Mine has been going to same address or account for 32 years, if it were to be different in 2018, should raise an immediate flag for IRS to check. Many people have to wait well into February or later to receive all documents required to properly file, so filing upon receipt of W2 is not an option.
On September 15, 2015 Experian servers were hacked. As many as 15 million people who used the company’s services, among them customers of American cellular company T-Mobile who had applied for Experian credit checks, may have had their private information exposed.
