"We recently discovered that some user data was compromised as a result of unauthorized access to one of our systems by a malicious third party", Quora Chief Executive Adam D'Angelo wrote in a blog post Monday.
Someone's taken a wander through the systems of question-and-answer website Quora, pilfering account details of 100 million users.
Quora first realised it had been compromised on Friday and immediately began investigating.
That's because to access a Quora page, you have to log in - either by creating an new account or by linking your Google or Facebook account.
The company said it is in the process of notifying users whose data have been compromised.
Compromised information includes cryptographically protected passwords, full names, email addresses, data imported from linked networks, and a variety of non-public content and actions, including direct messages, answer requests and downvotes.
Quora said it's highly unlikely that the hack will lead to identity theft as the site does not collect sensitive personal information such as credit card or social security numbers.
While the passwords were hashed with a unique salt for each Quora user, d'Angelo advised those who had re-used credentials across multiple services to change them as best practice.
The breach did not affect questions and answers written anonymously, it added.
Quora also notified law enforcement officials regarding this breach.
They do advise users to change their passwords for other accounts where they use the same password as on Quora. The company said it's still looking into the cause of the breach together with a digital forensics firm. "We will continue to work both internally and with our outside experts to gain a full understanding of what happened and take any further action as needed".
