Quora found the breach on November 30th and said it is still investigating. If you've used Google or Facebook to log in, or you've connected your Quora account with Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn, "we receive certain profile and account information about you from the Linked Network". The breached data also included public content and actions, such as questions, answers, comments, and upvotes.
100 million users are affected, with the hackers making off with important account information including names, email addresses, hashed passwords, and "data imported from linked networks when authorized by users".
The breach did not affect questions and answers written anonymously, it added.
Quora has started notifying users whose data has been compromised, and will log them out of the site "out of an abundance of caution".

A less useful decision by Quora: the company didn't elaborate on the format of the stolen password data except to say that it was "encrypted", by which it probably means the passwords were passed through a one-way hash function. The company said people should change their passwords if they use the same ones across different services. They also said that it's "highly unlikely" that the incident will result in identity theft because they don't collect personal information such as credit card or social security numbers. Quora has been sending out emails to users explaining what happened and steps being taken, such as the fact that the users have been logged out of their accounts and their passwords invalidated.
