Comixology, by far the biggest digitial comics storefront, has been hacked. While no credit card information was taken, the company is still requiring that you change your password before you can log in again. You know the drill.

In the course of a recent review and upgrade of our security infrastructure, we determined that an unauthorized individual accessed a database of ours that contained usernames, email addresses, and cryptographically protected passwords.

Payment account information is not stored on our servers.

Even though we store our passwords in protected form, as a precautionary measure we are requiring all users to change their passwords on the comiXology platform and recommend that you promptly change your password on any other website where you use the same or a similar password.

Bummer.
