(WWBT) - The once-dominated social networking site Myspace has been hacked.

Time Inc. says millions of accounts created before June 11, 2013, may have had data stolen.

USA Today says more than 360 million passwords may have been exposed and listed for sale in an online hacker forum.

Time says that Myspace is in the process of notifying all users and is working with law enforcement officers to resolve the issue.

Accounts created after June 2013 -- when Myspace was relaunched with new security steps -- were not impacted by the breach.
