He meant you have to email or pm in order to change it... there is no option for you to do it yourself.

I believe it's unecessary to change everything here. Only the password if that was shared. My e-mail here and there is the same, but not the password. I won't change a thing. My MangaTraders password is an old one I don't use for years now, so no worries.

Ok, i just want to ask because i don't understand it. Even if they hacked MT and got mail and passwords and so for example from me, how could they harm me? How could they find out where to use my info that they have from MT?

First, they can easily crack unsalted MD5 passwords. If that email/password combination was used on any other site, they could log into that site as you and try to do any number of things, including social engineering attacks. An end goal would be to get into the email account itself, which could cause huge amounts of problems.

Ok, but how to they know what site to try? How could they trace back the sites that i use? I don't have a clue on technical stuff. And what if they got my email account?

Were these guys
http://leak.sx/thread-293445

the ones responsible?

I had already changed most of my passwords prior to this, but doing it once again doesn't do harm.

And yes, I tried. It's unsalted MD5 (I checked with my PW there). Weird enough their own PW (which appears at least 3 times), it's not.

Google the list. There is a 4chan archive somewhere that links to a partial list. If your pw is not on it you're still not safe though, so definitely change.

Thank goodness I made an account on MT when I was 14 so the pw is no longer used anywhere else. Saw my old email and pw though cry

MU wasn't hacked. MT was. I guess you're safe.

Unsalted MD5?! Oh my fucking god, how incompetent can they be??

lambchopsil, from the way you said that, it's obvious that the passwords here are at least salted, but now I just have to check, you guys aren't using MD5, right? I hope you're using at *least* SHA-1.... SHA-256 or so is preferred....
