Welp given that I think you have to set up Gmail just for YouTube.

I read about this yesterday. I changed my password but it seems none of my accounts were affected. That's good, but I guess it's good for me to change my password anyway. Oh well.

Welp, and because it's a known fact that many people reuse passwords for the different websites, you know where this is going.
Anyway, just for extra security I fired up a new random string in PHPMyAdmin to use as the new password.

Just FYI, these passwords don't come from Gmail - many of them are too weak to pass Google's limits, or just plain don't work. They're probably from some other site and got associated with Gmail accounts.
