Swedish password hacking scandal expands

http://j.mp/v4Itvf  (The Local)

    "A password hacking scandal which on Tuesday exposed login details
     of 90,000 Swedes, including several journalists and celebrities,
     has widened to include 180,000 users on nearly 60 websites.  On
     Tuesday, information about more than 90,000 account passwords
     associated with the popular Swedish blogging site Bloggtoppen.se,
     was made public on the Twitter account of former Sweden Democrat
     MP William Petzll ... Through his lawyer, he claimed that his
     Twitter account had been hijacked and that he was not responsible
     for the publication of the information.  Jimmy Holmlund, who
     operates the Bloggtoppen.se website, confirmed however that the
     site had been hacked and has since been shut down."
