This is a pretty serious breach & I hope those passwords were encrypted well with good salting technology.
Salted-hash is usually pretty difficult to break, and I don't know of many success attempts against it, as long as you're not using archaic methods from the early 90's. I guess we'll find out in time. Though even if they manage to build themselves a cluster of GPU's for brute forcing it might take them 10 years to break it, as long as the salting was good.
