Bloomberg reports a security breach at Veritas Genetics included customer information, but the DNA-testing firm did not say what information was exposed or when it became aware of the breach. Veritas said a handful of customers were potentially affected by the recent unauthorized access of a customer-facing portal. The company said genetic data, DNA-test results and health records were not contained on the portal. The company has launched a forensic investigation and will notify potentially impacted customers “as appropriate under applicable law.” Meanwhile, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., is calling on Uber and Lyft to use fingerprint background checks for drivers and share driver data. (Registration may be required to access this article).
