I woke up to an email this morning from GEDmatch about their data breach. The email said that their database was exposed for about three hours to all users for matching. Law enforcement profiles were also exposed.

I just got email from GedMatch mentioning what Aaron stated.  It sounds like they had a 2nd breach so system is down for a few days to thoroughly check.

The email also mentioned that My Heritage also had an phishing Scam, but they are not sure if they are connected.
