Gawker Hacked; Comment Account Database Compromised

If you’ve ever created a commenting account on a Gawker Media website — Gawker, Gizmodo, Lifehacker, etc. — it’s probably compromised. That’s a real problem for anyone who uses the same password across multiple websites. There’s already evidence that people who use the same password for Twitter that they used for their Gawker account have had their Twitter accounts compromised.
