US lawmakers have questioned the former head of credit-scoring company Equifax about a cyber attack which may have exposed personal information of more than 145 million people.

Richard Smith, who retired last week, apologised repeatedly for the breach.

Some Congressional committee members said it should spur stronger data protection laws and prompt the US to rethink the role of credit agencies.

Others said different rules would not have been enough to prevent this hack.
