I'm not sure where to put this

We regret to inform you that the data breach includes e-mail addresses, user names, and encrypted passwords associated with forum accounts on these forums. Even though passwords were encrypted, these can be cracked and should be considered compromised. It is important to note that forum accounts and game accounts are separate and are stored on different servers using different security systems. Game accounts have not been compromised.

Does not work. It is a database of emails that have been stolen, filled out by sites that have been hacked, so if someone does not make dates of hacking available that information is missing. Funcom, which I know, has not disclosed the entity of the data being stolen and what emails have been affected. As always Funcom is cryptic!
