Nothing to see here.

PM hacked :-( Worse was the plain text passwords. So now my super secret password that I use on thousands of websites was compromised.

Update: Nov 2010 and PerlMonks still uses plain text passwords in their database.

Update: Dec 2011 and PerlMonks STILL uses plain text passwords. Wow. Getting hacked didn't change anything.

Update: September 2013 and rumor has it that PM still uses plain text passwords.
