BREACH: MyHeritage

MyHeritage, a genealogy & DNA testing company, disclosed that they have leaked 92 million users email addresses and their hashed passwords. While they don’t have the users actual password since it’s hashed, they have the chance to try to “crack the code” and reveal the true passwords.

This sets up an opportunity for the bad guys to create a phishing scheme and send a malicious email to 92 million users trying to have them “update” their information, or try to get them to click something and install malicious content on their computer.

If you have created an account with MyHeritage, you are strongly encouraged to change your password and keep an eye out for suspicious emails coming from a false MyHeritage account asking for information.
