Wow. Now estimated at over 10 million customers have had their personal details leaked.

What do I do?

Nothing. It happened some time in the past

As wee eddie says, this happened last year. Pin codes, card verification values and authentication data that could be used to make purchases were not compromised and there is no evidence any fraud has resulted.

What should you do? Nothing that I'm aware of. If you are worried because your contact details have been compromised, you could change your email address/password.

Massive fine on its way - possibly, but that remains to be seen. As far as I'm aware the ICO hasn't yet made any statement about that.

Well actually, I doesn't effect me. I have always bought from elsewhere. Never liked they're poor customer support.
