By Jennifer Dobner SALT LAKE CITY (Reuters) – The genealogy website Ancestry.com said its websites were recovering on Wednesday after hackers temporarily shut them down this week in a distributed denial of service attack, but it said no consumer data was compromised. In a post on Ancestry’s Facebook page on Wednesday, the company said some features had been disabled as a precaution and asked users for patience while the service was completely restored. No consumer data or information was compromised during the attack, Scott Sorensen, the company’s chief technology officer, said in a separate statement.
