Our friend, Filter Joe, has been researching and posting this news about a huge security breach that oddly hasn't received much attention in the English speaking world.

The largest social networking and blogging platform in the French speaking world, Skyrock, appears to have stored its 32 million users' passwords unencrypted. And, of course, anyone who wasn't using a good password management system probably has passwords for other sites that are identical to or predictable from their Skyrock passwords.
