what happened wasn't that somebody released anything....... what happened is a hacker sent up a phishing site, and people tried to login to their hotmail, gmail accounts. Of course the site is put up too look like it is hotmail or gmail, and when you feed your login and password all it does is record for the Spammers to buy the list, and perpetuate spam from new names. Pretty slick and easy. Thats why myspace is one of the most spammed social networking site.

Phishing attacks like this have been going on forever, it's just about 10,000 people not paying attention got caught and now have to change their passwords.

For the record, Microsoft and Google were not hacked.
