Reddit got hacked, exposing the personal data of select users

Another popular source, same issue… Data of users who registered in certain years has been exposed.

At last count, Reddit had at least as many average monthly users as the likes of Twitter, clocking in at over 330 million , was the fifth most visited site in the US, and had the highest user time-spend per day of any site in Australia.

Popularity often makes a website a juicy target for hackers, however, and Reddit’s now found itself an unwitting victim. Reddit’s chief technology officer, Christopher Slowe, today revealed that the site experienced a data breach between June 14 and June 18, 2018, in which some of its users’ personal data was accessed.

Specifically, every user account that was created between the site’s launch in 2005 until May 2007 has potentially had its username, email address, salted hashed password, and private messages (during that timeframe) accessed.
