eHarmony Got Hacked as Valentine’s Day Approaches

February 11, 2011


***

According to security expert Brian Krebs, the dating site eHarmony.com has been hacked. Krebs found a hacker offering up email addresses and user databases to eHarmony for $2,000 on an underground message board. Turns out the guy who perpetrated the hack were the same one who recently broke into dating site Plenty of Fish. So, if you get an email from a Nigerian prince asking you to marry him so that his $500 million fortune isn’t lost this Valentine’s Day, this is why.
