Gawker's main DB got hacked. All of their blogs had ALL accounts usernames and emails exposed, along with the password hash.

IF you had a simple password, chances are it got decrypted, too.

This includes:
Gizmodo
Lifehacker
Gawker
Kotaku
and any other site in that network. I can check for you if you want to see if you are safe. (PM your username or email to check)

Can't say I've ever made an account on any site in that network... and now, that's apparently a good thing. Thanks for letting people know, Chris.

I think I had an account on Kotaku... but it was a long time ago and I can't remember the password or anything like that. If I can't remember it then I'm pretty confident that some hacker wont know it either.
