Mike Hearn, the google fraud engineer who develops BitcoinJ, got the list and forced a password reset for all gmail accounts in that list.

someone on reddit posted a photo of the hashed passwords, with the clear text password next to it.  the clear text is only the first two characters then blurred out.

Set up the same thing..

I don't think that's true.  I've just tried logging into dooglus@gmail.com which was on the list, and it's working as usual.  I've not changed the password or been told about 'unusual activity'.  I didn't use the MtGox password anywhere else though, so I'm not worried.

I got my account deactivated today too. I never signed up for MtGox though, I wonder if they were just locking down all e-mails associated with Bitcoin.

It's true. Read the whole thread.

I mean it's not true that he forced a password reset for all gmail accounts on that list, because my gmail account is on that list, and no password reset was forced on my account.

It's basic logic.  Re-reading the whole thread won't change anything.

I only registered to MTGOX on Tuesday and my password was iamdana1qaz0p;/ so I think I'm safe.
