The dating site said it is "continuing to investigate" but "as a precaution" has reset affected members passwords.Affected members will receive an email with instructions on how to reset their passwords.eHarmoney, which brands itself as "#1 Trusted Online Dating Site for Singles" has around 20 million registered online users.
The breach was confirmed by Last.fm on their official Twitter account overnight, and comes amidst a backdrop of similar breaches, including at LinkedIn where up to 8 million passwords may have been compromised, and at dating site eHarmony where 1.5 million passwords were harvested.
