DNA testing service MyHeritage revealed that hackers had breached 92 million of its accounts. MyHeritage claims that hackers only accessed encrypted emails and passwords. Why would this be troublesome?
What if they also had accessed the DNA data for these 92 million accounts, including other identification information? You cannot change your DNA, unlike other account numbers (e.g., credit, debit, savings, checking, etc.). How would this impact on your privacy and security?
What should be done to secure your DNA code from hackers, or is such hacking inevitable now or in the near future? How can you protect yourself? Is there some form of science that's popular and accessible to the common person that can safeguard from DNA hacking?
