Pinterest Has Been Locking Accounts In Response To Hacks, May Not Know The Cause Of Security Breach
Pinterest has been temporarily locking accounts in response to hacks. It looks like the company doesnt know the cause of the security breaches.
On July 16, Pinterest posted a Locked Account Survey, asking affected users to complete a survey to assist our investigation. The eleven question survey is broad, covering a wide range of possible issues, from whether the user had experienced other security hacks to how they used Pinterest to what browser they used, suggesting that Pinterest doesnt know whats causing its hacks.
Pinterest posted five different notices between July 10 and 16 regarding hacks and locked accounts, with the last one being the survey. They have not posted since then.
