Washington: Online flash sales company the LivingSocial has been hacked.

More than 50 million accounts have been affected and the Washington-based company has asked its members to reset their passwords.

According to ZDNET, LivingSocial’s spokesperson confirmed the security breach.

In an email to its employees, CEO, Tim O’Shaughnessy, informed about the unauthorized access to some customer data from their servers.

The data included, names, email addresses, date of birth of some users, and encrypted passwords, the report added.

However, there have been no thefts of credit card information. They are redoubling efforts to avert such issues in future, Tim said.
