DaFont.com was hacked earlier this month, exposing its entire database of almost 700,000 usernames, email addresses, and passwords in plaintext. If you have an account on the site providing freely downloadable fonts, it's probably a good idea to change any shared passwords to secure your other accounts.

Thanks for the news. Do we know if their database was encrypted?

It was reported to be using the (old) MD5 algorithm, which is easy to crack into plaintext.
