Outputted into a 500MB torrent file, currently residing on the popular torrent tracker ThePirateBay is a database dump of about a million or so commenters and staff passwords.
Inside the torrent file lies a file entitled Readme.txt. This file is potentially the most sensitive of them all, for it holds the usernames and passwords used by the entire Gawker staff, focusing particularly on Gawker’s founder Nick Denton.
The usernames and passwords to Denton’s Google Apps, Twitter, Campfire accounts are all listed; Denton uses the same password for them all.
Also some gaming sites ftp passwords were stolen too..
Though all of the passwords were encrypted,simple ones may be vulnerable to a brute-force attack. You should change your Gawker password and on any other sites on which you’ve used the same passwords.
