Good one. I'm not an expert on this stuff (as I guess you were trying to point out) but I've heard a little about rainbow tables and what not and know a site compromise is a bad thing. If a hacker can update a table surely a select aint that hard?

I was just asking nicely if the passwords were stored in plain text, if so the hacker could have everyones passwords and email addresses. If people use the same passwords at other sites then this could pose a big problem (of course you know this).
