In an article yesterday, CNET reports that eHarmony’s password protection of its member’s accounts is practically worthless:
eHarmony’s spokeswoman Ms. Becky Teraoka said: “The security of our users is of the utmost importance to us. Due to our ongoing investigation and cooperation with law enforcement authorities, we cannot comment on these specific points.”
The same after every publicized hacking incident.
And, add probably Meetic, Parship, PlentyOfFish, Match, Chemistry, Perfectmatch, eDarling (eHarmony in Europe) and many others, who had suffered hacking attempts or not publicized hacking incidents.
Was it true that “past summer, June 2011, of eHarmony customers suffered as victims of identity theft once the website was successfully hacked and their credit information stolen and utilized in different markets.” ? Who knows?
