Equifax says its systems were not compromised in the latest cyberbreach scare to hit the firm.

Shares of the credit reporting company sank earlier on Thursday after Equifax said it had disabled one of its customer help online pages and was investigating another possible cyberbreach. They closed down about 1.69 percent.

In a late afternoon email, a spokesman said, "Equifax can confirm that its systems were not compromised and that the reported issue did not affect our consumer online dispute portal."

Earlier in the day, the consumer credit reporting company said its security teams were looking into another possible breach barely one month after it disclosed a hack that left exposed the personal information of 145.5 million people.

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