Nothing you can do, but I wouldn't sweat it. Chances are it's a not-used-very-much e-mail box anyhow - OR whomever got it saw an un-labelled attachment coming through their e-mail and was equally paranoid thinking "Oh My God - it's a spam/virus someone is sending to me!" I know I would NEVER, EVER open up an attachment sent to me unless it was both a) from someone I knew and b) the subject line was personalized so I knew exactly what it was (i.e., not "hey, check this out!").

Credit freeze is an excellent idea. And check your credit report a few times over the next few months. But really - chances are it's no issue.
