Gawker media has been hacked, and the passwords of users have been compromised. Although this site is highly unlikely to be targeted by hackers, it is still a good idea to change your password if you use the same password there as ther, if you go to any of the following sites:

"As of March 2010, it is the parent company for 10 different weblogs, including Gawker.com, Fleshbot, Deadspin, Lifehacker, Gizmodo, io9, Kotaku, Jalopnik, Jezebel, Gawker.tv, and Cityfile." - wikipedia

TBH, I have no idea what gawker even is, but.... apparently they have lots of sites, and it could impact someone here.

Thanks for posting that wolfy -- I don't use any of those sites, but it's nice that you are keeping an eye out for all of us. :)
