User data stolen but not unsecured
Hi, we have some sad news, but don't be alarmed...
Some people (and yes, we know who) found a security hole on our web site (in fact, actually in this blog).
They have got a copy of the user database. That is, your username and passwords. But, the passwords are stored encrypted, so it's not a big deal, but it's still very sad that it's out there. All e-mails are for instance encrypted as well, they will most likely not be able to decrypt them either (they are _very_ encrypted).
We encourage all our users to change passwords as soon as possible - and if you have the same password on the bay as other places, you should update them as well.
Sorry for the mess, but we are all human and we miss something sometimes.Link
Update: cateva comentarii la faza asta.
"I blame the MPAA / RIAA."
"I didn't know PirateBay had a login."
"I call bullshit on the emails being encrypted." Cu asta sunt de acord si eu, nu cred ca a criptat cineva mailurile vreodata.
""Angry Young Hackers"
What are they, some sort of emo hackers or something?" ROFL
