4chan Hacked, Hacker Targeted Moderator's Accounts

The image-based bulletin board 4chan was recently hacked.This was announced by 'moot' in a blog post. The attack took place last week and the intruder accessed administrative functions and information from one of 4Chan's databases.According to the blog post, the intruder stated that their motive was to expose the posting habits of a user who they dislike.
"After careful review, we believe the intrusion was limited to imageboard moderation panels, our reports queue, and some tables in our backend database. Due to the way the intruder extracted information from the database, we have detailed logs of what was accessed. The logs indicate that primarily moderator account names and credentials were targeted."

The intruder accessed the credentials of three 4chan Pass users. These victims have been notified and were offered refunds and lifetime Passes.
