MyHeritage Customers - Change Your Password!

And so it continues . . . Israel-based MyHeritage is asking customers to change their passwords.

Why? C'mon, you know why - 
...a security researcher found on the Internet a file containing the email addresses and hashed passwords of more than 92 million of its users.  [my emphasis]
Now hashed passwords are not plain text passwords, and the company (which performs DNA testing) said that DNA data is stored separately from the account information, but it still does not give you that warm, snuggly feeling, does it?
