Formspring Hacked, Hundreds of Thousand Passwords Taken

Those of you that use Formspring will need to change your password the next time you visit the site.

Social networking site Formspring said Tuesday that it was disabling nearly 30 million registered users' passwords after hundreds of thousands of them were leaked to the Web. Formspring said in a blog post that the breach happened after someone hacked into one of the San Francisco-based company's servers, adding that some 420,000 encrypted passwords later showed up on an unnamed security forum.
