Change Your Disqus Password Now

Show Sidebar

As stated in a blog entry, the comment service Disqus lost all of its user account credencials (email addresses, Disqus user names, sign-up dates, and last login dates) and the salted password hashes of a third of all users.

The passwords are encrypted but with a rather out of date algorithm which is declared broken for over a decade. Therefore, you have to assume that your password got decrypted already.

Since my blog does use Disqus as one of two possibilities to add comments: please do change your Disqus password immediately to a new and secure password. Not only my recommendation: three normal words which are easy to remember and type which do not appear anywhere in this combination. Like "security lost cloud".
