Largest ISP in Netherlands gets hacked.

Normally passwords are encrypted in the database (ie, run against a procedure that stores the result as something like PNF12$%11213l123ASLKFDJAS or whatever) so passwords aren't stored in plain text.

This is fairly common knowledge as far as any kind of development with passwords goes - so how does the largest ISP in Netherlands neglect this? And the idiot says it's encrypted in UTF-8? That's a text encoding, NOT an encryption method. ._.
