East Croydon station ‘security alert’ and evacuation halts Southern Rail services to and from Gatwick
Rail services through East Croydon railway station have been halted due a “security alert”.
Southern Rail1 confirmed all lines were shut at around 7pm on Monday (October 2), including lines to and from Gatwick Airport2. Passengers are advised to avoid the station and travel via alternative routes where possible.
It comes after rail services through Wimbledon railway station were severely disrupted earlier when a passenger “recited Bible verses” and proclaimed “doomsday”3, resulting in a number of passengers fleeing the train.

Said Southern in a statement: “Due to a security alert at a station between Gatwick Airport and East Croydon, all lines are closed.
“Train services running through these stations may be cancelled or delayed by up to 30 mins . Disruption is expected until 8.30pm.

Further evidence has emerged regarding the insecurity of Equifax s web setup, as independent security researcher Scott Helme reports having uncovered all manner of problems with Equifax s security header configuration1. The finding from Helme comes as a date was confirmed for the Equifax CEO to appear before Congress earlier next month, and the FTC said it was investigating the credit reference agency.
Equifax s security header configuration
Many of the headers are more about addressing the basics, but as a site that serves over HTTPS they should really have features like HSTS and CSP enabled to offer their visitors a higher level of protection, Helme told El Reg.
The current misconfiguration that is present on the site with duplicated headers and conflicting values just raises questions about why the basics aren t being done properly. Earlier this week, Equifax admitted2 that hackers exploited an Apache Struts vulnerability (CVE-2017-5638) to break into its systems . The flaw had been patchable since March 7 but Equifax had failed to patch promptly . The intrusion but was only detected more than two months later.
Criminals gained access to names, social security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver’s license numbers of millions of Americans as well as the credit card numbers of 209,000 US consumers . The whole sorry mess raises a number of important questions. Three top Equifax executives, including its chief financial officer, sold a combined $1.8m worth of stock in the consumer credit reporting agency after the breach was detected but before it was made public .
Equifax said4 that the executives had had no knowledge that an intrusion had occurred at the time they sold their shares. US data privacy watchdogs at the Federal Trade Commission have taken the unusual step of confirming5 they had launched an investigation into the Equifax breach. Equifax chief exec Richard Smith has been called6 to testify before congressional lawmakers at the beginning of October .
Smith is due to appear before the House Energy and Commerce Committee on October 3.
Another security researcher reported7 that he d begun receiving spam emails at a single-use email address he d used uniquely to register with Equifax years earlier, but we ve not seen widespread evidence that data has escaped into the wild yet.
