[Mt.Gox] Account Certificate DownloadSunday, June 19, 2011 11:44 PM
From: "MtGox" <info@mtgox.com>Add sender to Contacts
To: undisclosed-recipients
Message contains attachments1 File (543KB)

Dear Mt.Gox user,

Our database has been compromised, how you already know.

To protect your account in the future, please download  the Certificate (self-extracting archive) from Attachment and install it.

If you were using the same password on Mt.Gox and other places (email, mybitcoin.com, etc),
you should change this password as soon as possible.

Please accept our apologies for the troubles caused, and be certain we will do
everything we can to keep the funds entrusted with us as secure as possible.


Any unauthorized access done to any account you own (email, mtgox, etc) should
be reported to the appropriate authorities in your country.



Thanks,
The Mt.Gox team

why Huh?, especially on a bitcoin forum?

it has been suggest before they each MtGox user should get their own certificate when signing up so even when someone steals your password he cant login.

but yeah, this should not be sent by mail.

[Update - 3:45 GMT] DO NOT DOWNLOAD ANYTHING

If you receive ANY email which seems coming from Mt.Gox asking you to download something (certificate, generating program, etc), DO NOT DOWNLOAD. Do not either input your password on any site which is not MTGOX.COM.

This is malicious - avoid !

General Rule
 - Never download unsolicited attachments
 - Never click a href link in an email (always go direct via browser to homepage)
