Default Hacked?

So I get a monthly email from lifelock and they inform me that part of my personal info has been put up for sale online, and the breached site is Abandonia.com.

What's going on guys?

Hi,

from our news page, date 28-05-2016

"Reminder please change your password
It has come to our knowledge that a stolen list of all user emails and password hashes is circulating around the Internet. The data belongs to Abandonia among many other websites, and it is not clear how up-to-date it is. According to Abandonia's owner:

- In the case of Abandonia the data is probably from the breach in November 2015, about which we informed at the time.

- At that time measures were taken to make the site more secure.

We recommend everyone to change their password if they haven't yet since the time of the breach.

We are sorry this happened."
