    Think of the energy put into security that could be saved if people were just honest.

    By the way, now is a great time to CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD peeps!

    Why on earth did you NOT SALTED the hashes?

    Please don't try to pass the blame on us for us having weak passwords.

    We would still be safe if you had just salted the hashes. (even after allowing the hackers in)

    We've had much worse, I remember when GS was hacked and all our files yes everything we uploaded to GS got into the wrong hands and he was selling it all for a pretty cheap price.

    DBA (if you guys remember us from back then) and one other who will remain nameless managed to get his name and address and proof he had all the files.

    We handed this info over to GS and they started criminal proceedings, makes me wonder if the new hacker got into the files?
