05 Dec 100 Million Users Affected in Quora Breach
Quora disclosed this week that hackers had been able to break into its servers and stole the user data of around 100 million users.
Quora said that private data including account information (names, email addresses, encrypted passwords), and both public and non-public content and actions had been accessed by the hackers.
Quora CEO Adam D’Angelo said that questions and answers written anonymously were not affected since the company does not store the identities of people who post anonymous content.
The company also said that it had already reset the passwords of all users, and it is highly unlikely that this incident will result in identity theft since the site does not collect sensitive personal information like credit card or social security numbers.
