    Supposedly, I received an email from my bank (caught in the SPAM folder) regarding this email breach. Checking the email header, the IP was from Epsilon (we know addresses can be spoofed), however, there are no Security Alerts about this incident in my bank account and a phone call verified this.

    Looks like Spammers are taking advantage of this situation, so be extra careful in opening any such emails and clicking its links; contact your bank directly!
