We've had a report that Lit.Org may have been compromised sometime in the past. There's no details, just that is showing up as a site with a password dump in a pastebin here:

I could not verify this and it seems unlikely but it's possible. Lit.Org does not actually store your passwords though, just hashed versions and we never collected sensitive user information and users could use "handles" so if it was, damage should be minimal.

With an abundance of caution, please go and change your passwords on LIt.Org and any site where you use the same username/email as you used to sign up at Lit.Org
