Gawker Network Hacked–Nick Denton’s Passwords Posted Online

Gawker just got hacked bigtime. A group calling itself Gnosis claimed credit for the attack, after posting the usernames and passwords of all accounts within the Gawker network online.

Gawker founder Nick Denton got it especially bad.

He apparently uses the same password for his Google Apps, Twitter and Campfire accounts–all of which were hacked.

Gawker is advising that if you have an account with Gawker, Gizmodo, Jalopnik, Jezebel, Kotaku, Lifehacker, Deadspin, io9, or Fleshbot you need to change your that password immediately, and any other accounts across the Internet where you may use that same password.
