Disqus was hacked, but we are only hearing about it now...

Recommended Posts

I recently change all the passwords that might have be hacked from the Disqus Data breach. But then again I haven't used those accounts for years and there was no personal information on them anyway. As I don't like to be real me on internet, prefer to be a fake me with fake info that can't be used to be real me by someone who isn't me.

Ok, they have my emailaddress now (yay spam).

But can salted passwordhashes be recalculated to a real password?

And salted passwordhashes injected to a password checker, nowadays?

Yeah, the Disqus hack is rather irrelevant as long as people do not use the same password for anything else. Password managers like KeePassX for storing and generating passwords made that easy a decade ago.

 

But the Equifax hack is something, most are helpless against. Only few can afford to not being known by the credit reporting agencies.
