Information Security Awareness: MyHeritage Genealogy Service Breach

If you use MyHeritage, please check the company's website for information about a recent breach. The service has reported that 92 million e-mail addresses and hashed passwords were disclosed, but says that DNA results were not breached. This breach illustrates two key points: 1. When you use a DNA analysis service, ask what the company does with your DNA results once they are passed on to you. 2. This site did not use two-factor authentication. Be aware, stay safe. Read more about the breach through Reuters.
