Joining LinkedIn, dating website eHarmony said Wednesday that it is investigating the possible theft of its members' passwords.
eHarmony has confirmed that a hacker recently gained access to a file containing user information, weeks after another popular dating site was compromised.

Yahoo presumably took no measures to ensure sensitive stuff like customer account credentials were kept safe and sound.
