Quora announced it has been hit by a data breach after it discovered hackers had gained unauthorized access to its systems. Quora estimates about 100 million users had their information compromised in the incident, such as their usernames, email addresses, encrypted passwords and other information imported from authorized networks. The question-and-answer website is in the process of notifying all impacted users and states it has taken the steps to address the issue. “It is our responsibility to make sure things like this don’t happen, and we failed to meet that responsibility,” Quora CEO Adam D’Angelo wrote in a blog post. “We recognize that in order to maintain user trust, we need to work very hard to make sure this does not happen again.”
