If you become a victim of identify fraud in the next 6 months, you might
want to see if this is the cause...

"In California, the only state that requires companies to disclose security
breaches, ChoicePoint sent warning letters to 30,000 to 35,000 consumers
advising them to check their credit reports.

Jones said the company was still determining whether consumers outside
California were affected, and declined to say whether it would notify
them."
