QuakeCon Forums Hacked

The QuakeCon Website outlines a recent hacking incident on the old QuakeCon forums:

In recent days, a hacker carried out an unlawful intrusion of the old forums.quakecon.org site, compromising usernames and passwords. While we have taken appropriate steps to protect the new forums from attack, we recommend anyone using their old credentials on another site to change their passwords immediately.

We regret any inconvenience this may have caused, and suggest you migrate to the new forums which will be live shortly to discuss QuakeCon 2011.

It's way past time I changed my passwords. I have 4 passwords that I randomly use for low security things like forums. I checked my password safe to see what I used at the QuakeCon forums and searched for sites I used the same password on. Given the recent spree of hacking, I'm just going to go through them all and generate a random password for each site.
