The four executives who sold stocks just days after Equifax Inc.’s security department observed suspicious activity have been cleared by a special committee tasked with looking at various aspects of the breach. The execs in question did not have knowledge of the security incident and “received clearance from the appropriate Legal Department personnel prior to trading,” according to the report from the special committee.
