A dozen companies say that hackers may have stolen millions of consumer email addresses because of a security breach at an ad company, including banks COF, BCS, USB, C and JPM, and retailers BBY, TIVO, WAG and KR, plus DIS. The companies are warning customers to expect fraudulent emails that try to coax account login information from them.

    Yep, US bank told me this on Friday. How comforting that first they sell my information to somebody without me knowing it and then that company loses it.

    Watch for those emails that claim you might have been affected by the theft. They'll claim to be your bank warning you and even encouraging you to check for yourself by clicking on their hyperlink to their phony website to log on and see.
