Reddit resets more than 100K user passwords

After hackers share millions of passwords stolen from other sites, Reddit decides it needs to take action.

Reddit on Thursday alerted its community that it has sent out more than 100,000 password-reset notices over the past two weeks. Though Reddit itself hasn't been hacked, it decided to act after seeing an uptick in account takeovers by malicious or "(at best spammy) third parties," the company said in a post.

In the post, Reddit refers to millions of passwords being dumped on the hacker market. That includes a Russian hacker who traded 272 million passwords for social media "likes," and the fallout from the LinkedIn data breach in 2012.
