Dreamhost not so dreamy, 3,500 passwords leaked for 2 weeks or more

Dreamhost leaks 3,500 FTP passwords – Caydel’s SEO Blog

I just recieved this email from Dreamhost. It seems that they’ve leaked 3500 FTP account passwords somehow.

That explains a lot – about 2 weeks ago, someone used my password to upload tons of spam links to my sites. At the time, I contacted Dreamhost indicating the problem, and they assured me that their servers were secure, and it *must* be my problem. Looks like it wan’t me.
