Regardless of this incident, anyone using such passwords needs to change them anyways, so maybe this can work as a wake up call.

Someone recently broke one of my gmail accounts somehow that was using 7 characters letters and numbers, no words... luckily I don't keep anyone in my online address book except my other accounts, so I just got spammed from my own account and Google disabled my account temporarily due to suspicious activity.  Seems like the days for 15 character complex password requirements are getting here soon.
