Warning for users of the Python and Jython wiki

Hello all,

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 
passwords.

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.
