Imgur, a popular image hosting website, has disclosed that the company suffered a data breach in 2014 which involved 1.7 million user accounts. A security researcher alerted the company to a possible breach on November 23, and Imgur confirmed the incident the following day. Imgur notified affected users via their registered email address and also issued a public notice detailing the breach. Only email addresses and passwords of Imgur user accounts were compromised. The NJCCIC recommends all Imgur users update their account passwords immediately, as well as login credentials to any accounts that share the same email address or password.
