The latest website to be hacked: eHarmony.

According to an item posted on the popular dating site's blog:

After investigating reports of compromised passwords, we have found that a small fraction of our user base has been affected. We are continuing to investigate but would like to provide the following actions we are taking to protect our members.

As a precaution, we have reset affected members passwords.

Those members will receive an email with instructions on how to reset their passwords.

We recommend all members to practice these robust password security tips:

• Create a strong password of at least 8 characters, composed of lowercase and uppercase letters, numbers and symbols
• Create different passwords for each of the Internet sites you use
• Change your passwords every few months
