Yay! 21st century life! These breaches will never stop but only get more complex and far-reaching. I had to check and it looks like my wife and I were both compromised. It's a good idea to check just to be cautious if your information could possibly be taken.

Thanks for sharing the info, but we already have a thread about the Equifax situation, and that thread also includes discussions about what consumers can/should do, what the arbitration clause means, concerns about the site provided for folks to check if their info has been compromised, etc.

Therefore I've closed this thread.

I don't believe anyone has posted that particular article yet though in the existing thread, so I do encourage you to post it there.
