I got notified so many times in such a short period of time, after Home Depot & Target that I now have a free life time supply of credit monitoring, etc.

at this point, who's data hasn't gotten jacked? Just because we haven't been notified doesn't mean it hasn't happened. Hell, My BattleNet from the late 90s got hacked the other day... not even the new account I made for Diablo iii beta (last blizzard title I've touched).
Pretty much. I just assume all my personal identifying info (including my SSN) is out there somewhere on either the open or dark net and take preventative measures accordingly.

With the weird parameters contained in the database, I'm thinking it is probably AARP.
it sounds like a life insurance LEAD database. 40 is the age life insurance companies get interested in people, people who own a home and their income is vital information for life insurance salesmen (their ssn however is not). I doubt this is owned by a major company, it's likely a database cobbled together by one of those lead generating companies out there which they then sell to life insurance companies.

based on a couple sites i've seen, I could probably find your 10 last common passwords with just your name, and all the other data.

and honestly... who's the most OP hacker in the US?... Uncle Sam, I would assume he refreshes data on all citizens, yearly, by hook or by crook.
