Nathaniel Mott:
"The passwords should be safe, because they were secured by the SHA-1 protocol, but dedicated attackers could still figure them out."

CDPR:
"It is our understanding that the obsolete forum database contained usernames, email addresses and salted MD5 passwords (MD5 is an encryption algorithm we used to encrypt your data)."

Which one is it please?

Oh, and dear CDPR, MD5 IS NOT AN ENCRYPTION ALGORITHM, IT IS A HASHING ALGORITHM!

If it was uniquely salted, then it would only take a rainbow table against each individual password. Not hard either way.
