              In an attack, hackers five years ago captured the user database of the forum owner with e-mail addresses and encrypted passwords.
            
            
            
            The Disqus service provider 2012 has lost the user database through a hack. The data collected includes user names, e-mail addresses, passwords, as well as the time of logon and the last login of the then 17.5 million users. According to a blog entry, an independent security researcher informed the operator two days ago.
According to Disqus, the passwords were stored as SHA1 hash with Salt. This procedure is now no longer safe, so the end of 2012, the forum provider has switched to the safer bcrypt. Although there have so far no indications for unauthorized login given, the passwords of potentially affected users, but Disqus has been cautiously reset. If you have not changed your disqus password since 2012, it should absolutely change.
Disqus is financed with a freemium model. The basic version can be used free of charge by website and blog operators. The ad-free versions with additional functions are paid for.
