Monster.com, the popular online job-hunting site, is reporting another major breach of its user database — the third time it has disclosed such a breach in the past two years.

In a warning issued to users on Friday, Monster.com stated that its “database was illegally accessed and certain contact and account data were taken, including Monster user IDs and passwords, email addresses, names, phone numbers, and some basic demographic data.” The stolen data did not include resumes, the company said.
