PSA: Change Your Doomworld Password

Post by Kinsie »

Apparently some script kiddy knocked over the Doomworld database and spilled a bunch of the contents, including encrypted passwords. Now, they're encrypted with bcrypt, so the odds of them being cracked are pretty damn low to say the least, so you probably shouldn't freak out too much. That being said, it can't really hurt to err on the side of caution and change your Doomworld password anyway. It takes like ten seconds!

Also: The passwords of any sites you used the same password on. You really shouldn't reuse passwords across multiple sites for exactly this reason! I recommend using a password manager like KeePass to keep everything straight.

If you don't have a Doomworld account, then this thread doesn't apply to you, and reading it was probably a waste of your time. I'm sorry. Please accept this overelaborate screen capture mechanism as compensation:
