Equifax shares are down 3 percent after it said it has disabled one of its customer help online pages and is investigating another possible cyberbreach.

The consumer credit reporting company said its security teams are looking into another possible breach barely one month after it disclosed a hack that left personal information for 145.5 million people exposed.

The company said the problem is in its credit report assistance link on its website. "We are aware of the situation," a spokesman said. "Our IT and Security teams are looking into this matter, and out of an abundance of caution have temporarily taken this page offline."
