You probably read that Gawker, the snarky Manhattan media/gossip site that everyone reads, was hacked over the weekend, and the passwords of many, many users were compromised.
Apparently whatever security the site had in place posed only a (wait for it) minor threat to the offenders, who disseminated a file containing some of the decrypted passwords via BitTorrent. One of my colleagues looked at the file, and guess what? At least 25 Gawker users have the password “Fugazi.” Um, D.C. represent?
Change your passwords, hardcore fans.
