93,000+ Pokemon Go Trainer Accounts Hacked


On October 1, 2016, 93,000 Pokemon Trainer Accounts were apparently published with passwords on PokemonGoDev. The file containing the information was eventually removed but no word on how many people gained access to the file while it remained up, nor do we know where else the file has been published.

Some users, however, reported their accounts were compromised. Reddit user Paralyzed21 confirmed today a password recovery was required to regain access to their account. Others are saying similar.

As of now, it appears only Pokemon Trainer Club accounts were compromised; this means if you use a Google account to login, your account should be fine.
