EnlargeQuora: Hackers steal data from 100 million users

The Quora website was founded in 2009 and is a portal where users can exchange knowledge with one another. The site is available in a variety of languages ​​including English, Spanish, French, Italian, and German. Quora has now reported a security breach in which attackers seem to have gained access to around 100 million user data.

Quora noticed the attack on November 30th and said the investigation is still in full swing. To be on the safe side, all users have been logged off. Quora also forces users to reset the password for all accounts with a password, i.e. accounts that are not logged in via Google or Facebook.

The attackers were given access to password data, names, e-mail addresses, private messages and public content such as questions, answers and ratings on the portal. Users are still encouraged to change all passwords on other services for which an identical password has been used.

Quora is currently sending out mails informing users of the hack. However, the portal has also created an FAQ on the topic, which you can find here.
