After LinkedIn revealed that the company is aided by authorities in analyzing the incident as a result of which millions of passwords have ended up online, eHarmony also released an updated statement saying that they’re doing the same.
“We have also been working with law enforcement authorities in our investigation and have been in touch with one of the other companies affected as well,” said
eHarmony’s Becky Teraoka.
Similar to LinkedIn and Last.fm, eHarmony is also reluctant in providing exact details. However, they’ve taken certain steps to remove the risks posed by the incident.
While they fail to provide the exact number
of impacted individuals, they highlight the fact that the “small percentage of affected accounts” have been secured by disabling their passwords.
Emails have been sent, containing not only instructions on how passwords can be changed, but also a phone number and a live online chat access to the company’s Customer Care team for users who may have additional questions.
