23andMe investigating theft and leak of user data

“Genetic testing company 23andMe said Friday that it believes some of its users' data was compromised in a credential-stuffing attack and is being circulated on a dark-web hacking forum. “

“The attacker behind the incident already leaked to a popular hacking forum an initial sample of 1 million data points about users with Ashkenazi Jewish heritage, according to a post seen by Axios.“

“The initial sample includes people's full names, birth years, location information and more, per the post. The attacker also reportedly published a separate sample with information about more than 300,000 users with Chinese heritage earlier in the week, according to The Record.“
