Perlmonks passwords compromised

Just on the off-chance that you read this blog, have a Perlmonks account and haven't heard already (even though notification emails have been sent AFAIK):

The perlmonks server has compromised and the entire user database was accessible to the attacker. What is even worse, the passwords were in cleartext (so they are directly accessible without any additional processing/cracking)! Go change your passwords now!
