News XKCD forums breached
In The Name Of Allah
Al-Salam Alekum

[Image: computer-system-security-breach-picture-...jpg?x41705]

The forum for the techie-darling comic strip XKCD was still offline on Monday afternoon after Troy Hunt’s breach site, Have I Been Pwned, reported on Sunday that 562,000 of the forum’s accounts had been breached sometime in August.

A breach notice on the echochamber.me/xkcd forums echoed Hunt’s message: portions of the forums’ phpBB user table showed up in a cache of leaked data, it said. The forum exposed usernames, email addresses, passwords salted and hashed using the obsolete MD5 hashing function, and IP addresses.
