I got mine yesterday, too. I especially liked the part that said hackers may have captured even more personal information, and I could get specific information on what data of mine was compromised if I logged in and provided the last SIX digits of my Social Security Number (the missing first three were based on the location where you applied for your number, and could be easily determined by trial and error). Yeah, that's just what I want, yet another database they have with my personal data.
