For a long time now, MtGox has been collecting personal and financial information about its users (in a manner completely against the spirit of Bitcoin, IMHO.)

In the beginning it was only names and bank accounts, required to wire money in and out of MtGox.
Later, MagicalTux started to ask for scans of notarized copies of government issued ID's, passports, bank letters, utility bills etc. in order to increase withdrawal limits or simply to release funds.

I would like to know:
1. how many people had their personal information compromised during this attack.
2. what kind of information was leaked.
3. were the proper authorities informed abuot this incident (not MtGox being hacked, but people's personal info being exposed - different animal!)

MagicalTux, please think really hard before you answer this!
It is your chance to come clean about some unclean practices...

Isn't MT Gox based in Japan ?

They, Japan, must have laws related to the gathering, recording, and storage of personal information. Japan is a modern, socially advanced country, easily the equal to north America, western Europe, and other similar peoples on that matter.

I agree. But I want an official answer from MtGox before I move forward on this.
