    Dear Mt.Gox user,

    Our database has been compromised, including your email. We are working on a
    quick resolution and to begin with, your password has been disabled as a
    security measure (and you will need to reset it to login again on Mt.Gox).

    If you were using the same password on Mt.Gox and other places (email, etc),
    you should change this password as soon as possible.

    For more details, please see this:

    https://support.mtgox.com/entries/2...ell-off-due-to-a-compromised-account-rollback

    The informations there will be updated as our investigation progresses.

    Please accept our apologies for the troubles caused, and be certain we will do
    everything we can to keep the funds entrusted with us as secure as possible.


    The leaked data includes the following:

    - Account number
    - Account login
    - Email address
    - Encrypted password

    While the password is encrypted, it is possible to bruteforce most passwords
    with time, and it is likely bad people are working on this right now.


    Any unauthorized access done to any account you own (email, mtgox, etc) should
    be reported to the appropriate authorities in your country.


    Thanks,
    The Mt.Gox team

    pools are much less secure, my password and email was compromised and bitcoin wallet changed in the payout thing from bitcoinpool.com, they stored the password in plain text, no encryption...

    problem is that nothing can be truly decentralized at its beginnings. Also note that you gotta make mistakes to improve. Also, MTGox always has been under heavy hacker pressure

    still, you got a good point

    I'm trying to crack my MTGox password at the moment, just to see what it is. Also, I already got like 6000+ other passwords on accident cause I copy pasted into the .txt file, but now I'm just going for mine. I seriously make up new passwords for each site, but still fun to crack it!

    The CSV file containing all the users / passes / emails was leaked, so I have that. I won't post the link here cause it will get taken down.

    Cracking wise, all I do is plug it in to JTR or C&A (Prefer the former), and just sit back which my 460 rapes away at password hashes.

    why not just type your password or copy a rainbow table and encrypt it and watch cain and able try that. im curious as to why you went and found the leaked bitcoin DB. The real question being how many of those usn and passwords are you going to try to see if the people changed their passwrds.

    I went to go find the leaked DB to see if I used a unique password, which I usually do, in order to make sure I am not compromised.

    oh if they hacked sony why cant the hack any thing on the web , bitcoins seems quick profit so they continue attacking it , the stupid hacker that stole 25k coins from one account tried to sell them for one cent a coin it was obvious that he wasn't aiming for cash he just wanted to crash bitcoin and he almost succeed at that

    The hacker wasnt the one that ended up buying the 25k of bitcoins, a guy posted on the official forums saying he was the one that ended up buying them by putting in bid of 0.0101 compared to everyone elses 0.01 so he ended up getting them. He then contacted the head guy of bitcoins or mtgox, cant remember so go look over at forums for the full story

    ...and killing someone with a .22 LR works more or less the same way as blowing up a ship with a giant naval gun too(slugs don't explode with pleasing fireworks though).

    pretty sad encryption if a gtx460 can decrypt a CSV file... why didnt they use 2048bit RSA encryption?

    In retrospect, I'd imagine a lot of people wish they sold at $30...

    There are like what, 7m bitcoins now? People are still mining it like crazy, being treated more like exotic artifacts than money. transaction fee-based income is still negligible.

    forgive me from being too lazy to read through all the posts, but i really want to get into bitcoin mining. is there some sort of guide on how to setup everything?

    nvm: googling a few minutes more does wonders

    Given that the price of 58XX cards has gone off the charts, I figure I should stick to the current gen and hopefully be able to sell them down the road.

    I can currently either get three 6870s or two 6970s. I would add a 6990 to my dilemma but they are out of stock.

    Which would be more cost-effective, in terms of MHash/power consumption? And would the 6970s hold their value better?

    Thanks!

    6870x2 from powercolor should do great. If you have enough power, just fit as many as you can on your mobo. 6990s aren't bad either.

    However the on that beats these by a lot are used 5870s/5970s/5850s and even 5770s

    if u buy 2x5770(1600sp) it \will be better than buying 1 6870(1120) because its all about stream processors

    Value is still falling like a rock. When I first looked into mining like 2 weeks ago a 6990 could get you $33 a day. Now it's less than $7. At this rate they'll be worthless.
