Some 100 million users of anonymous questions-and-answers site Quora might not be anonymous much longer, as the company has announced a massive data breach.
The site, which allows users to ask and answer each other’s questions anonymously was compromised by a “malicious third party” last week, according to a blog post from CEO Adam D’Angelo.

Marriott mega-hack: Half a BILLION guests’ data exposed over 4 years
Names, email addresses, passwords, data stored on the site, and data imported from linked networks like Facebook and Twitter were among the trove of information accessed by the third party. 100 million of the site’s 300 million users may have been affected, D’Angelo said.
=======================================
I have vsited the Quora site a few times by accident & was not aware that you had to establish an account with personal data. Not sure how this article included Marriott which also had a major data breach recently associated with their Starwood hotel chain.
