The digests aren't old. 
An email / reddit username combo can be super powerful for doxxing. 

Glad my reddit account cycle has me covered.

Wow just say this looks like more of a social engineering attack against the hosting provider and phone company. I wonder how many people from 2005-2007 are still active on Reddit. This breach shouldn't affect anyone who registered after 2007 but its always best to change your passwords just in case.

interesting, anyone got any clue to how their SMS 2FA was breached? seems useful
#8
Should be a very interesting leak to get my hands on.

Top comment from the Reddit admin:

"In other news, we hired our very first Head of Security, and he started 2.5 months ago. I’m not going to out him in this thread for obvious reason, and he has been put through his paces in his first few months. So far he hasn’t quit."

Blush Oops!
