I’ve been a fan of the web comic xkcd for a while, so it was sad to read of their recent security troubles.
Hackers breach forum of popular webcomic ‘XKCD’
“The xkcd forums are currently offline. We’ve been alerted that portions of the PHPBB user table from our forums showed up in a leaked data collection. The data includes usernames, email addresses, salted, hashed passwords, and in some cases an IP address from the time of registration,” the forum administrators wrote.
It does give us the opportunity to share one of their comic strips again, though.
