After reading more on it (including the actual C&D letter) at the compendium site, I'm now really hoping no leak happens (unless SE has a change of heart). SE's lawyers have the hackers' names and addresses, and have stated that they'll be held personally liable for any leak, to the tune of up to a $150,000 fine, plus any possible criminal charges.

It's a sad situation, but there's no reasonable choice but to comply. I hope all beta testers cooperate, because otherwise they'll throw the hackers into a legal nightmare.
