Gawker Media Comments Accounts Compromised

"This weekend we discovered that Gawker Media's servers were compromised, resulting in a security breach at Lifehacker, Gizmodo, Gawker, Jezebel, io9, Jalopnik, Kotaku, Deadspin, and Fleshbot. If you're a commenter on any of our sites, you probably have several questions." via Kotaku

Someone please tell me I don't have to change all my passwords. unsure.gif

I can't believe this came from Kotaku!

Anyway, anyone who uses Kotaku, Gizmodo, Lifehacker, Gawker, etc. already know about this. There is a list you can check to see if your name was part of the released database. Luckily, I was not, but I went ahead and changed passwords that were the same as mine for that series of sites. Better safe than hacked.

Where can I find this list? Can't seem to find anything.
