It is our responsibility to make sure things like this don’t happen, and we failed to meet that responsibility, We recognize that in order to maintain user trust, we need to work very hard to make sure this does not happen again. - Adam D’Angelo, CEO at QuoraImmediately after this Quora hack took place, Quora logged out all the affected users, invalidated old passwords and emailed affected users. Quora also asked its users to reset their passwords. The smart thing that benefitted Quora was, the hackers were unable to access any of posted questions or answers written anonymously. While the platform doesn't keep the identities of the people stored who are posting for discussing their personal and sensitive matters, it couldn't protect the accounts who discussed their personal matter via direct message. These sort of data breach is an alert for the users to create unique passwords protecting from different account services you avail. Just a few days before the Quora breach, on Friday the enormous hotel chain, The Marriott International also complained about its system breach. Marriott Starwood data breach allowed hackers access to the passport numbers, card data (credit) and other personal details of over 500 million customers.
