    Odds are my info was in that one, but it almost doesn't matter - my info was stolen when OPM was hacked, too.

This is kind of why I sometimes bitterly laugh at privacy/crypto folks. You can take all the precautions you want personally, but massive organizations have TONS of data on you, and they don't take security as seriously as you do.

Yep. In this day and age, the only thing private is the thing you never write down.
