Reddit User Data Stolen

Reddit has had a rough week: first an outage caused by DNS troubles and now with stolen user data:

On a separate note, we want to make you aware that media of ours that contained a backup of a portion of the reddit database was stolen recently. Although the media did not contain any personally identifiable information about our users and we have no reason to believe that reddit data was the target of the theft, we wanted to alert you to the possibility that your username, password, and -- in some cases -- e-mail address may have been compromised.

Better change those passwords ASAP.
