In this article “Graphics processor biz NVIDIA has contacted users of its discussion forums and Developer Zone to warn that its servers have been hacked.

The message boards hosted at forums.nvidia.com and the programming resource developer.nvidia.com were breached last week. Data lifted from the compromised systems included account passwords although they were properly salted and stored as a one-way encrypted hash.

That information includes usernames and email addresses, along with the per-user “About Me” profile page details which are public-facing anyway.”
