Matt Brian reporting for The Next Web:
Sensitive information has been exposed, including staff conversations, their private passwords used within the network and passwords also used by people who have registered to comment.
If you’ve ever registered to comment on Gizmodo, Lifehacker, Gawker, or any other Gawker Media website, your account is likely compromised. This is especially a problem for anyone who uses the same password for other websites. I strongly suggest changing your password on any website that shares the same password with Gawker Media.
