Following a string of revelations from several media companies who announced they had been recently hacked, Twitter came forward this past week to say it had also been the target of a sophisticated attack. Anonymous hackers breached the social network and may have gained access to passwords and other information for as many as 250,000 user accounts. Twitter said in a blog post that the passwords were encrypted and that it had already reset them as a "precautionary measure," and that it had notified affected users.

Here are the stories behind other recent password violations of the Internet's most used sites.
