Great article on arstechnica.com: Why passwords have never been weaker—and crackers have never been stronger
The most important single contribution to cracking knowledge came in late 2009, when an SQL injection attack against online games service RockYou.com exposed 32 million plaintext passwords used by its members to log in to their accounts.
