I'm sure that the security team is doing good work. I'm also sure for 
now there's nothing I can do but wait for good news. at least I know 
that debating on the powerful WPA2 or MD5 hash won't help.

But the only question, that has not been answered yet. is that I would 
like to know if the password were encoded in plain text.

It's not as simple as "yep but you should have a different password on 
any website" there you won't have any problems.

I guess, we all are web professionnnal, thus means, we should all have 
something like 100+ different IDs.

so I'll ask who, here us a unique password per website ?

another point is : maybe my password is identical on any website, but 
maybe my login is different. this mean my login capabilities on other 
website could remain secure from the time intrusion on other services 
are only based on the strict stolen couple login / password .

well, let's hope the guy/girl is not going so sell our information at 
evil peoples.
