Hopefully you've not got too many dirty pics on your eHarmony account because hackers have taken “unlocking the key to your heart” to a whole new level. They've stolen up to 1.5 million user passwords from the popular dating site and posted them online, Ars Technica reports.
Don't underestimate the power of internet dating. If you’ve been to a wedding in the last few days EHarmony might be the invisible best man standing at the alter. The Daily Mail reports eHarmony is responsible for 500 weddings every day in the U.S. The site also operates in UK, Canada, Australia and Brazil.
The site has moved swiftly to regain the trust of its users by emailing those whose privacy has been breeched and resetting passwords. The extent of the hacking, and access to private user information, is not yet clear.
Are you an eHarmony member? Has your privacy been breeched?
