DId I Get Gawkered?

If you haven't heard yet, the Gawker Media network, which includes popular websites such as Lifehacker, Gizmodo, Jezebel, io9, Jalopnik, Kotaku, Deadspin, Fleshbot, and of course Gawker, was compromised. The hacker group Gnosis posted a torrent containing a full dump of Gawker's source code as well as the entire user database of around 1.3 million usernames, email addresses, and DES-based crypt(3) password hashes.

Duo Security has launched a site that allows you to easily check if your username or email address was included in the Gawker password dump: http://didigetgawkered.com

More information on the hack and an analysis of the data can be found here: Brief Analysis of the Gawker Password Dump - Duo Security
