Some time recently, the wiki at http://wiki.python.org/ was hacked. The
vandal who broke in deleted all the wiki data. However, it is possible
that before destroying the data, he may have gained access to user
If you had an account on the wiki, and use the same password elsewhere,
then you should change that password immediately.
In general, you should not use the same password for multiple systems,
and naturally once a password has been (potentially) compromised, never
use it, or trivial modifications of it, again.
