I received the below alert and not really sure what it refers to.
"This source has been marked as sensitive due to one of the following reasons: Revealing the source may compromise an on-going investigation. The affected site is of a controversial nature but does not validate email addresses and could therefore be used to tarnish an employee's reputation."
I can't change the account details because it won't let me and I don't know which account it is. Can someone from McAfee contact me by DM to discuss please?

@Hari_durairaj "Please ensure which email address got breached under which website and change the password of your account."
As I said in my original post, there are no details as to what the site is, so I can't change the password...
I got the same message a few hours ago and I agree I could not determine what the breech was from the info McAfee provided, i.e. which specific account had been compromised.
I did contact McAfee by phone and after the agent investigated was informed that it was my email address password that was compromised. Like many I have several email addresses and so set about changing all the email account passwords.
A bit more detailed info on this would have helped, and also stopped me calling in.
We regret for the inconvenience!
Kindly let us know the Screen shot of the issue to assist you further
Alternatively, I have sent a private message to you, kindly revert with the required details for immediate assistance.
I also received this email today and when I rang to speak to them I got the same nonsense.
I then got told "several others have reported the same and we advise you to constantly change your passwords it's a healthy reminder from us to change the passwords regularly"
Not helpful given then the rather foreboding nature of the message left on the breach!
I checked the "have I been pwnd" site and no new ones have appeared there so I'd like to know what this is please!
Hi Can you please contact me also. I'm concerned that no one has provided an answer to this. Thank you.
