MyHeritage Security

You are advised to change your password for MyHeritage.

The background to the security breach of 92 million accounts is on this MyHeritage blog post.

It's shocking there's been no notice directly to subscribers!

https://blog.myheritage.com/2018/06/cybersecurity-incident-june-5-6-update/ includes the fact that they're expiring everybody's password and preparing to send emails to all users -- with 96.3 million people to inform, I expect it will take a while.

I agree that it's shocking that there's no direct notification to subscribers, but that being said, they were still pretty quick to get the word out. Most other companies try to hide security breaches for months or even years.
