Imgur involved in a breach!
It has been reported that Imgur have been involved in a massive breach involving potentially 1.7 million subscriber’s information. Imgur is like a picture garage it displays hundreds of images and displays trending images per day, it has an impressive collection of images. The firm admitted to leaking the information however this massive breach took place way back in 2014.
The administrator of the HaveIBeenPwned website Troy Hunt notified the company about their issue. Imgur posted confirmation about the breach after Hunt had been in touch but this was 25 hours after Hunt notified them. This isn’t very good at all Hunt then took to Twitter to make people aware of this which doesn’t improve things for Imgur.
