NOTE: Originally it was thought that the information being posted to IRC channels was coming from only US and Canadian Credit Unions based on conversations but after seeing some of the information being updated it appears as though UK may have also been affected. We are still monitoring for updates. If and when the bulk dump occurs we will know more detail.
