If you’ve ever given your email address to any of the companies named above, then you’re probably among those who received a warning message today saying that your name and email address had been compromised as the result of an attack by an unknown party on the database of Epsilon, an email marketing firm owned by Alliance Data Systems.

As of noon PT, people I know are saying they’ve received notifications from Hilton Hotels and Ethan Allen.
