DNA Diagnostics Center (DDC), an Ohio-based DNA testing company, has disclosed a hacking incident that affects 2,102,436 persons.
The incident resulted in a confirmed data breach that occurred between May 24, 2021, and July 28, 2021, and the firm concluded its internal investigation on October 29, 2021.
The information that the hackers accessed includes the following:
The compromised database contained older backups dating between 2004 and 2012, and it’s not linked to the active systems and databases used by DDC today.
“The impacted database was associated with a national genetic testing organization that DDC has never used in its operations and has not been active since 2012.” reads the notice.
“DDC acquired certain assets from this national genetic testing organization in 2012 that included certain personal information, and therefore, impacts from this incident are not associated with DDC.”
DDC is working with external cyber-security experts to regain possession of the stolen files and ensure that the threat actor won’t propagate them further. So far, there have been no reports of fraud or improper use of the stolen details.
The affected individuals will receive a notification letter and instructions on enrolling for one year of free credit monitoring and identity theft protection services through Experian.
The recipients of these notices are advised to remain vigilant against frauds and monitor their bank account statements frequently to identify and report suspicious activity immediately.
DDC underlines that no genetic testing data has been exposed due to the data breach incident, as this is stored in a different system.
The company offers paternity, DNA relationship, fertility, COVID-19, ancestry, and testing for immigration purposes, so they are holding very sensitive data.
According to the notice though, nothing relevant to these services has been compromised.
We have reached out to DCC to request more details about the nature and impact of the hacking incident, and we will update this piece as soon as we have a response.

Instead of some crappy Experian (who gets breached) for one year, these companies need to get roasted. From now on you pay, $10,000 to each person you lost their data…..this will stop this lackadaisical security practices, not some stupid "1 year of crappy protection"
Add another $10,000 per person when these Companies give your data away or sell it to a 3rd party

Why should anyone pay for their own DNA info, when these Companies just turn around and give it away, sell it, or lose it to others
