Netrunner Online has been Hacked

Dear Netrunner Online Users,

It has been brought to my attention that Netrunner Online has become the target of a Hacker Group. About 850 Usernames, Email Addresses and Passwords have been leaked.

Please do note that passwords on NetrunnerOnline are encrypted, however passwords with less than 12 characters using english words are likly to be valnerable to reverse-engineering.

I am currently in correspondence with my ISP to get more information. In the meantime, please take the time to update your password on Netrunner Online site using a password reset tool that has been added to the Profile Settings today. Please also update passwords on other sites that use the same username/email/password combination as they may become vulnerable.

I apologize for this inconvenience,
- Frank (Webmaster)

This is unfortunate but happens.  Thanks for encrypting the passwords, Frank.  Where they hashed and salted or only hashed?  If they were salted, did the salt leak also?

I'd prefer not to discuss details of encryption used on the site. However, I do recommend you update your passwords in either case just to be on the safe side.

If you have registered after 6/1/2013 are likely not affected.

Posting the hashes is like giving all details. Google indexes all trivial (and weak, and even medium) passwords hashes ...

I took a look at the pastebin. The hash listed for me is the md5sum of my password.

And the reverse is easily found in google, as I said :/
