    the way i heard this story (as told by a 4channer) it was christian dating site singles.com that got “hacked”. they were storing email+password combos in a file called passwords.txt, and some people happened to be using the same email+password combo for a bunch of things.

    It sounds, in this case, like a school’s list of internal passwords was obtained, and hackers exploited the fact that most people use similar or identical passwords across multiple accounts.
