eHarmony Hit By LinkedIn Password Hacker
Santa Monica-based online dating and relationship site eHarmony has been hit by the same hacker which hit LinkedIn, it appears, after security experts discovered that the same hacker posting LinkedIn account data has also been posting passwords from eHarmony. eHarmony told its users that it has found a "small fraction" of its user base has been affected, and that it has reset affected members passwords. eHarmony did not say how many passwords its believe were affected on its site. LinkedIn's breach was estimated to have affected 6.5 million of its users.
