Slack has already stated that it learned from the bug bounty program that there was access to information about platform credentials and they were “potentially compromised”. This means that email addresses and passwords may have been leaked. This is related to a security incident that occurred there in 2015. If you've been using Slack since then, know how to reset your personal password.

“We have no reason to believe your account has been affected. However, out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to reset all passwords that have not been changed since March 2015,” reads the Slack email, which also states which user account is at stake.
If you received this email, you will need to change your password next Login. If you haven't received it and are also interested in changing your access code, see how to do that.
You must have access to the email address associated with your Slack account to reset your password. If you've lost access to your e-mail address, resolve it with your ISP first.
