Official statement:

"Possible Leak of Encrypted Passwords
by magpie, Sunday 21. November 2004 at 22:58 EET

As you may have noticed, earlier today the password for every Q
account was changed. This was due to a suspected leak of some
encrypted passwords from the QuakeNet website, shortly
beforehand, causing the passwords to be changed as a
precautionary measure whilst we investigated.

If you use your Q account password as any other password, we
recommend you change these as well, to ensure you are fully
secure.

You will be able to request your new password using Q's
REQUESTPASSWORD command, as follows:

/msg Q REQUESTPASSWORD your.email@address.here

We would like to assure users that we are working hard to ensure
this cannot happen again, and we apologise for any inconvenience
caused."
