If you’ve never heard of Reddit, just ask your teen about it. It’s basically an online news aggregator and discussion platform. Oh, and it gets over 600 million visits ever month. So yeah, it’s kind of a big deal that last week, a hacker (likely a ticked-off user) managed to hack into it’s system via SMS messages meant for employees. While the jilted Redditer wasn’t able to gain access to Reddit’s systems, they were able to get their hands on some user data, including email addresses and private messages. Reddit has fixed the problem and is asking users to move to token-based two-factor authentication, where an app on your mobile phone generates a unique one-time passcode. Stay safe and Reddit on!
