I think the ddos attack was just a convenient time for this database leak info to resurface. Someone is out to make some quick cash.

Hi, I saw this article but found nothing with the search. It's fake or should we worry?

https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/hacked-bitcointalk-org-user-data-goes-up-for-sale-on-dark-web/

I'm lucky because I wasn't here on 2015, but I think I should say something at least, just to be sure.
Yes you're lucky because you are a newbie and you didn't registered your account on that year Tongue maybe ? , right ? , but if you guys registered account from that year then change all  like email and password so it wont hack.

Definitely real. I used a unique email here to track if it ever escaped, and I have only in the last week or so started receiving lots of spam on that email Sad

Oh well, anything bitcoin is always a target. Im not surprised. Im just happy all details here are unique and fake.

the admins already confirmed the hack and it is said the database was hacked last year,so all the users need to be careful that their account is secure and users need to change the password.

I was wondering this myself, recently I keep finindg bitcoin related dark market offers in my email box associated with my bitcointalk account.

It is first time when something like this is happening after that database leak. Now I know I am not alone and someone bought email list of bitcointalk users and keep using it to send spam.

Yes everyone know that it happened. Now they changed password security to sha256crypt anyway. It's good to have a stronger passwords. Tongue

Passwords were hashed and salted with sha256crypt at the time if the hack; it isn't a recent change. Agreed that a stronger password is always best though.
