Default *urgent* anyone else heard about the password leak?

Just had a text from a work mate telling me to change all passwords if they are the same as my hotmail one ASAP. Apparetly there has been a set of documents leaked which contain all usernames and passwords for hotmail. Not sure what to make of it tbh, anyone else heard anything?

doubt they store the password as cleartext in their DB, usualy it will be hashed

this bloke is a pretty big geek, he's always talking about the side of PC's I know nothing about. You echo my initial reaction but then again other than OS based software I know nothing about a computer.

I change my passwords for everything every other month anyway. Because I've been the victim of some serious ID theft and fraud, I got into the habit. Luckily I have a really good memory for things like this as I have no plan for passwords. I literally change them to use something that I can see, have seen or heard that day, something completely random and pick numbers off my lotto tickets at random to add to them. No-one would stand a chance of guessing any! The only one I don't change is the one for this forum as I don't see the point.

Urban myth started by the actions of "Croll" against Twitter.

Nothing more than a social engineering exercise, which is why I refuse to refer to "Croll" with their self appointed name.

I discounted this as normally companies only store a hash of the password using something similar to sha1 encryption.

So, imagine my surprise when I read:
