Canada, UK launched joint probe into 23andMe data breach, says Canada

OTTAWA (Reuters) - The Canadian and British privacy authorities have launched a joint probe into a data breach at genetics testing company 23andme last year, Canada's privacy commissioner said in a statement on Monday.

Last October, 23andMe told some customers of a breach into the "DNA Relatives" feature that allowed them to compare ancestry information with users worldwide.
