Formspring Disables All User Accounts After 420,000 User Accounts Compromised Earlier

You may be familiar with the question and answer site called Formspring, well if you’ve only just signed in again you may be in for a surprise as due to a security breach the service has disabled everyone’s password after Formspring was alerted that someone posted cryptographic hashes of 420,000 of user passwords on a security forum.

As no usernames where attached there’s not much that can be done with them but as a precaution they have reset the passwords anyway.
