Two Thumbs

Change Your Password

I think LJ forced a password change a little while ago, but if you haven't changed it in a while, do it now. This is a breach that LJ made known and was reported on previously, but the data dump finally appeared on 5/26. The breach happened in January, 2017 (or 2014? depending on source), but the info hadn't appeared in the wild until now.
