The Straight Dope Message Board Hacked

The popular forum The Straight Dope is advising its users to change their passwords after the security team discovered that the forum was targeted and hacked. As a result, the hacker obtained the board users' information such as usernames, email addresses and passwords. The moderator,Ed Zotti, recommend the users to follow some steps which he published in the announcement post about the security breach.
The moderator also stated that the passwords are encrypted,but is still asking users to change them because if a user's password is not complex, the hacker can use decryption techniques to figure out the password.
"We are also working with law enforcement officials and conducting our own investigations." said Ed Zotti.
