Depends on the password. Yours is in google.
Every (hashed) password found in the published file has to be considered as compromised (non-salted md5 is weak, today)

The encryption on this site has been update and no longer uses md5. Please let me know if you are experiencing issues logging on to the site.

@WormholeSurfer if your password is a common word/numbers, I highly recommend you update any other sites where you are using the same password (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, bank sites etc...) as it is possible to reverse-engineer md5 hashed passwords.

This article may provide some additional insight, as we are entering a new age of hacking and cracking.

We didn't have these issues 5 years ago when the site was built. Please rest assured, I've take all necessary precautions to provide a higher level of protection of your passwords. as a general rule:

- please do not use the same password for multiple site
- make sure your password is 12+ Characters using a combination of uppercase, lowercase, number and symbols.
