The U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has put on hold a full-scale investigation into how Equifax failed to protect personal details of millions of customers following last year's data breach, according to Reuters.

Equifax had previously confirmed that the data breach had compromised names, phone numbers, driving license numbers and other details of 693,665 UK consumers.

In September last year, U.S. credit rating agency Equifax revealed that it had suffered a major data breach that compromised personal details of millions of customers, including credit card details of over 209,000 citizens.
