As part of our ongoing efforts to monitor and enhance security, we recently detected evidence of an unauthorized access to one of our user databases. The unauthorized access occurred in December 2010, and evidence of this has just been uncovered due to increased security analysis.

Did you read anything? It happened in December of 2010...so if anything happened it would have happened by now. Looks like they just shut it down to force everyone to change their passwords. Good lesson to change your passwords for everything now and then...
As someone who is still dealing with the repercussions of the Sony hack last year, let me just jump in early and give a big THANK YOU to Cryptic for letting us know about this promptly rather than letting it sit around.
