Hackers steal 100 million Quora users

 

Quora is a place to gain and share knowledge. It’s a platform to ask questions and connect with people said around 100 million users may have been exposed after a “malicious third party” gained access to one of the company’s computer systems.

 

Quora discovered the breach on Friday, November 30, when they found that user’s data was accessed by an unauthorized third-party and until right now, the company is focused on notifying all users who may have had their personal data exposed  about one-third of the site’s accounts.

The trove of data that hackers may have accessed includes names, email addresses, imported data from linked accounts, hashed passwords, and direct messages.

 

And as a safety measure, Quora chief is currently notifying users whose data was compromised and logging out all affected Quora users, also notified law enforcement officials and has retained a leading digital forensics and security firm to assist them.

 

However, Quora has advised its users to not reuse the same password as Quora across multiple services, and suggested them to change it if they are doing so.
