I think there is a 70 billion dollar class action lawsuit filed in the USA. That's about $400 ish dollars for each individual if all 143 million individuals were citizens of the USA. Lmao.
70 billion minus legal fees of course, so yeah, stand in line for that $12 check!

Not a hot deal. Opposite of hot. You will not be able to get in on any class action lawsuits

So does this mean someone knew about this breach 1-2 weeks ago before it hit the mainstream press?

They knew about it at the end of July. Before this was disclosed, some company employees sold over $1million of stock.

The very definition of insider trading.

What's sad is the worst I expect to happen to these guys is being tossed from the board.

I'd be thrilled if they even saw one day in jail.

Do you need to have a credit card to get this alert? I dont have Credit card with CIBC, and I dont see this type of alert under 'Manage my Alert'-> 'Fraud Prevention Alert'
Looks like you require a card. But hey, check it out.

what should worry you is not getting spam emails... but getting all of your personal infos stolen, house sold without even you knowing, fews credit cards account opened without your consent, having to confirm by call every single things you buy online, getting refused randomly at the store when using your CC because you need to call to confirm it's really you. The spammy emails are the least of your concern if you got all of your infos stolen

I am guessing some online outfits would not bother to call but instead reject the order. This will be heart-breaking especially during US Thanksgiving sale.

The Americans have the ability to do a "security freeze" on their credit reports (no one can access their credit reports, thus no new credit): https://arstechnica.com/information-tec ... -now-what/

Yet we don't have that ability here in Canada. Please write to your MPs and Bill Morneau to change that

Thanks
IMO, just because the US can carry out a security credit freeze, it doesn't mean it's a good solution to follow. Essentially, this whole thing with the breach is an issue because the identity proofing process only requires static immutable personal data. Regulations and processes should be improved such that mutable/transactional personal information is used, or improve the identity proofing criteria / process overall.

(i.e. security credit freeze is just a temporary patch on a existing insufficiently secure process)
