Washington Post Jobs Site Hacked

Hackers last week broke into The Washington Post’s jobs site and gained access to nearly 1.3 million user IDs and email addresses, the news organization revealed yesterday.

Although the hackers were able to access to certain user information on Washington Post Jobs, passwords and personal information such as resumes or contact information were not compromised, according to an email the news organization sent to its users.

Neither nor any Washington Post systems were affected by the breach.

The Post warned users to beware of unsolicited emails that may ask for personal information, and to avoid opening suspicious or unsolicited emails or click any links in spam.
