It was disussed in the ask the admins bit of the conf. Basicly there was a zeroday hole in the forum software that EG patched within hours but not before it was cracked by some Australian scriptkiddy who probably got the same email. He hung aroud for a bit before messing with the system. The possibility of a full breach was limited given the level of the exploitation and the limits on data transfer imposed by PHP timeouts on the server at the time meaning that it was unlikely they were able to dump the user table or anything like that.

Also, edugeek's passwords are salted MD5 - so harder to crack large numbers of them than say linkedin's unsalted sha1.
According to @zero_hour the attacker had limited access (no root) and while it was possible to see the hashed passwords, no evidence of a mass download was there.

From the article
"Skycure Security said the the mobile app was sending unencrypted calendar entries to LinkedIn servers without users' knowledge.
The information included meeting notes, which often contain information such as dialling numbers and passcodes for conference calls."
Rather irresponsible of Linkin to be sending any kind of private data unencrypted...
