i found it... i mean the http://pastebin.com/fzgRhdYd where IRC talk about 10k dollars, and MT going down permanently. i still wish this is not true.


Thanks for finding this out... man this sucks... it's getting more and more complicated to read manga, I always used mangatraders and this place and now MT is gone and we can't get scanlation group's sites here anymore... :/

So for me it seems that for a few guys' "look what I can do" Stuart moment we're losing one of the best and most valuable manga sites ever. Bravo! Stuart would surely be happy for getting so many similar-minded friends, guys :^)

I'm wondering, so they published the username - password - email combination. If for other websites, I used another username, but with the same email and password, how big of a risk would this be?

I also just noticed that the MU FAQ does not include "How to change your password", but only has "How do I change my username?" and "I've lost my username or password!". I did find how to change it smile

LoveWitch, I suggest you change your pw anyway. That Leak site posted up the email addresses and mine was up there.

Damn. That's the first time my email has been included in a data leak none

Thankfully, I've been using LastPass since last year and all of my passwords are now random unique alphanumeric, case sensitive strings (with special characters), at least 18 characters long.

First time my email has been included in a data leak too. Luckily, the password I used on MT was an easy one that I don't use anywhere else. But I still changed all my passwords just to be on the safe side since the email was my primary email. (I've since changed my primary emails on various important sites to a new one).

I think everyone should change their passwords on other sites, even if you think you're safe. Well, despite all the trouble this has caused me, I'm now making randomly generated passwords a habit. and to not use my primary email to sign up. eyes

Hi all,

I'm sorry if this has been asked already but I just wanted some clarification regarding the Mangatraders hacking incident.

I went on google and searched for the "lists" that show who is effected by this incident and I found my email amongst the many others that are effected in the list. Therefore, I was just wondering what we (the people who had accounts with Mangatraders) should be doing to stop the many potential problems that could come from this data leak?

Change your password on other sites if you are using the same password as that of MT.

It's not incredibly fast to do so yet

The current method seems fast enough to be practical. (see Wikipedia)

Seems like the site is completely down now, not even the message from the Mangatraders staff is displayed anymore (instead it says 'webpage not available'). I was afraid this might happen and frankly I'm not very hopeful the site will ever function again, but I hope the admins will find some other way to make their archive available again...Has anyone else got any new information on the subject?

I don't think it's gone for good. I'm sure they are just reworking some stuff. Fingers crossed.
