Reddit security team has not provided any official notification of the breach, but the scale of the incident suggests that attackers may have gained access to a high-level coordinator or administrator account.

Owners of troubled channels were asked to report them on the Reddit thread ModSupport.

The hack on Reddit comes after Reddit was banned r / The_Donald, a channel for Donald Trump supporters, in late June. Reddit said it had decided to shut down the channel for breaking the rules following reports of harassment, intimidation and threats of violence.
