There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

Forum was hacked, no way of telling what they have. Better safe than sorry. If you're using the same password on other sites you should change them too.
