Mashable recently posted an article that the personal data of its users have been discovered in a leaked database posted on the internet. Mashable issued a statement on November 8 confirming that a database with information from readers who used the social media sign-in feature for the site has been found online.

The types of data in the database included first and last names, general location (such as city or country), email addresses, gender, date of registration, IP addresses, links to social media profiles, expired OAuth tokens, and month and day of user birthdays (but not year).
