As far as the known facts are concerned, someone hacked into GEDMatches database and changed everyone's privacy settings to public.  A number of unknown matches were injected into the systerm.  It might have been from law enforcement or from somewhere else, but either way, it caused the entire database to be available to anyone who wanted to see it for any reason.  Why, who knows?  We have no idea at this juncture what else may have been compromised, including names, email addresses, etc.
