I may be the last to know about this however this morning I received a phishing email trying to blackmail me for $2,000 in bit coin. The wording of the email matches a phishing scam that has been around a few years and will reference a password harvested from the data breach.

I traced it back to Widener's and sure enough when I went to their website I received a browser notification to change my password. Never received any other notification from Widener's. If you have an account with Widener's you should change your password ASAP.

Are you using the Google Chrome Password Checkup extension?

Yes I am. The blackmail email also addresses you by your PW, not your name. That is how I tracked it back to Widener's.
