Yet another news item about personal data being hacked:

"According to the BBC, the hack compromised personal data such as credit card details, passwords and home addresses. The credit card details were encrypted, said Linden Lab, and a second database holding unencrypted information was not affected."

Because the company cannot determine which accounts have been compromised, it has asked all users to change their passwords.
