Gawker Media's Web-server, DB, Online Accounts Hacked By Gnosis (#operationpayback)

A hacker group (Gnosis) has claimed to have successfully carried out an attack on Gawker Media, the parent company of sites like Gizmodo, Lifehacker, Kotaku, and Gawker. The group has posted an extensive list of usernames and passwords of Gawker Media accounts, including the company's founder Nick Denton. According to the information on PasteBin, Denton uses the same password for many of his accounts across the Internet. In addition, FTP information was taken in the attack.
At this point in time, it's unclear which hacker group is responsible for the attack. The PasteBin was filed by someone going by the name "Gnosis," as seen in the ASCII art at the top of the document. In addition, the name carries the tagline "Where is your god now!?!?" With that being said, the person who filed the PasteBin document does make some references to renowned hacker group "Anonymous." However, it's unclear if he/she is associated with Anonymous or is just using that name. 
This is the second time Gawker Media has been hacked in the last year. The first time was in early December 2010, where thousands of accounts were compromised.
