Juha-Matti was the first to write in with this article from Brian Krebs.  The article explains how the Pirate Bay user database was compromised via SQL injection.  http://krebsonsecurity.com/2010/07/pirate-bay-hack-exposes-user-booty/

Of course, I am sure that none of our readers would have an account at the Pirate Bay except for the rare "I'm doing security research" purpose only.  But you may want to drop a helpful hint to your "friends".
