Please take the following actions if you have been affected by these breaches:
- Change your password right away and never use the same password twice (see my article on credential stuffing below)
- Send an email to them and let them know that you are aware of the breach and ask them to provide you with Identity protection and credit Monitoring services.
Please let me know if you need any help in relation to this or with anything else.
