Imgur confirms email addresses, passwords stolen in 2014 hack


Imgur, one of the world's most visited websites, has confirmed a hack dating back to 2014.

The company told ZDNet that hackers stole 1.7 million email addresses and passwords, scrambled with the SHA-256 algorithm, which has been passed over in recent years in favor of stronger password scramblers.

Imgur said the breach didn't include personal information because the site has "never asked" for real names, addresses, or phone numbers.

The stolen accounts represent a fraction of Imgur's 150 million monthly users.
