Could you please explain in detail how these passwords were "encrypted"?
Were they hashed? Using which hash function? Did you use a SALT?

I have a simple password that I use for sites like these, which means
that the hackers now have access to other forums and bug trackers I am
registered in. It's not a problem for me.
