According to DDC company statements and third-party reports, over two million individuals may have had their personal data compromised by a hack into the DNA Diagnostics Center network.

DNA Diagnostics (DDC) is an Ohio-based DNA testing company, and has signaled that around 2,102,000 persons could have been impacted by the cyberattack.

The incident resulted in a data breach that occurred between May 24 and July 28, 2021. DNA Diagnostics only discovered the data leak on October 29, 2021. Potential personal information that the hackers may have accessed includes:

  • Names
  • Social Security numbers
  • Credit card numbers
  • Debit card numbers
  • Financial account number
  • Platform account password

The compromised data system contained backup files dating between 2004 and 2012. In early August DNA Diagnostics Center (DDC) detected potential unauthorized access to its network, at which time the hackers acquired the archived database that contained customers’ personal information. While much of the financial information may be outdated, Social Security number leaks are of grave concern, and are very valuable to cybercriminals involved in identity theft and other fraudulent activities

The Lyon Firm is based in Cincinnati, Ohio and is investigating the DNA Diagnostics data breach and is actively involved in numerous data privacy cases and has experience filing data theft claims on behalf of plaintiffs nationwide.
