Looks like I lucked out, but 140 million or so affected.

Nice to see the company's CFO sold $1.8M in shares days after the breach. Wouldn't want the company's executives to have to suffer the negative consequences of poor performance.

This is really bad, in terms of quality of data lost: social security numbers, credit card numbers, driver's licenses ... you really can't get any worse than this.

What might be more depressing - the company's stock only dropped about 20 points, from around 142 to 121, and is already recovering. So, all told, that exec only saved around $250K and Wall Street is already shrugging off the fact that "poor people's" data was exposed (I saw an article that actually said that).

Basically, if you sign up for their free security, they want you to waive the right to sue.
