Reddit Hacked, User Data Taken

Reddit has announced that they were hacked in June losing control of current user email addresses and a complete 2007 backup including password salted and hashed to Reddit's 2007 standards for such things (archived). Reddit attributes their loss to SMS based 2 factor authorization being defeated with their third party cloud and code hosting providers. They further claimed to have involved "law enforcement" in this matter.
