    There is a site that checks if your email address is associated with any online hacker lists that are published
    google "Have I been pwned"

    My account seems OK but its saying service unavailable when I try to change my password. I also think its strange that tesco passwords are restricted to 10 characters.

    the news report does state that customers that they believed have been affected have been contacted
    They haven't contact all their customer base which you would think would be good practise so that everyone changes their email address and passwords
