Typically most security systems will take your password and apply a secret key to it before hashing it; this key is called a salt. Therefore successfully decrypting a hash usually involves discovering the salt and not just the hash technique.

Leaked means the encrypted hash form of your password has been leaked. It looks something like this:

Cracked means someone has successfully decrypted that hash and now knows exactly what your password is.

IIRC, we don't know whether the people who obtained the leak also have a list of accounts/emails associated with each hash. But I'd say there is a fairly good chance.
