Identity Theft Security Risk - From Employer

So I get an email today from our IT department at work. In a nutshell it says that there was a virus a few weeks ago and they believe my work computer may have been breached. The virus was such that I may have had my passwords stolen.

They warn me that I should change my password for all my online accounts, as well as all my work accounts. They did give me a gift-certificate code to a credit monitoring service for 1 year of credit monitoring.

I know it wasn't "their" fault, and they are doing good to rectify the problem, but it sure is a chore to implement what is needed and stressful to boot.

What a hassle. :(
