Gawker compromised

As I'm sure you've heard by now - and even if you haven't, I'm here to tell you - the user database for Gawker has been compromised and everyone's usernames and passwords are now out in the wilds of the Internet.

To quote from Emily Orr:

"Gawker currently comprises Gawker, Gawker.TV, Lifehacker, Deadspin, Kotaku, Gizmodo, Jalopnik, Jezebel, io9, Fleshbot (NSFW, if you couldn't figure it out from the name), Cityfile, and possibly New York Daily News. If you were signed up to any one of these services, your account name and password ARE out on the internet."

Change your passwords NOW.
