IMHO, they should take as long as they need to to secure their site.

According to their last post, they'll be back up at 8:00 AM GMT, which is a little over 3 hours from now, so we don't have long to wait anyway.

It's too late for that since it's impossible to know which passwords are cracked or not. Once MtGox comes online, all passwords should be invalidated, and this is exactly what will happen according to the latest updates. You'll have to reset your password by email (if you have an email on file) or by otherwise proving who you are.

At this point if your mt gox account has been accessed, there is nothing you can do.  What you need to do is change the passwords for sites that shared an email address with the one you used at mt gox, and any password that is the same between mt gox and any other site.  

Apparently they plan on using some multi step authentication when they go back on line.  I honestly cannot speculate on how that will work.

To not have a secure system in place when they come back online would be suicide. Allow them time to sort this mess out. No-ones going to access your account in the meantime as all accounts have been disabled.

* da2ce7 isn't worried... as I use a SECURE password... you know... I also leave 10 kg of gold in a safe under my bed... the password is: 1234.

One off NP-Hard.
