^Pretty much my thoughts too. In order to find out if I’m affected I have to enter lots of personal information into this website. They probably already have it, but maybe not, and I’ve no guarantees that the info I give them won’t be used in other ways. Besides, the only course of action suggested to affected individuals is to monitor your financial statements closely, which you should be doing anyway.

Better to just assume all your information is already in the hands of malicious parties and act accordingly. If your information wasn’t leaded in this breach, is was from one of dozens of reported leaks before this one, or one that we don’t even know about.
