“We have started an investigation into these allegations, and we will notify users once we have confirmation and details. That’s all we have to say at this time.”
An exclusive report from The Register Stated:
“Spokespersons for MyHeritage confirmed samples from its now-for-sale database are real and were taken from its servers in October 2017, a cyber-break-in it told the world about in 2018.”
