I hope you are well.
MangaDex – 2,987,329 breached accounts
In March 2021, the manga fan site MangaDex suffered a data breach that resulted in the exposure of almost 3 million subscribers. The data included email and IP addresses, usernames and passwords stored as bcrypt hashes. The data was subsequently circulated within hacking groups.
If you have a MangaDex account please follow these steps:
- Change your password and make sure your new password is at least 10 characters long and contains an upper case, lower case, number and a symbol. You can even use a modified phrase or a line from a song if that helps you remember.
- Make sure you do not use the same password twice as this leaves you vulnerable to credential stuffing.
- Find a good password manager tool to help you remember all of your passwords. Some of our users say that 1Password is a good tool.
- Check out Incognito’s Email Hack Check tool. All you have to do is enter your email address and we will tell you instantly if it has been involved in one of the many data breaches that happen every day.
Let me know if you need any help.
All the best,
