so, how did you manage to get hundreds of password in 6 seconds?

OH YOU HAD THAT LEAKED HASH LIST!!

Now how long would it take you to get those hundreds of passwords / account combos w/out that list?



It's pretty much impossible without the hashed password list, but you are either missing the point completely or you're being intentionally obtuse.

Every network is hackable.  It's not a matter of if, but of how long it will take and what methods will be employed.

Password hashing and salting wouldn't have been invented if this wasn't the case.  Why do you need to secure the contents of something if you can prevent it from being stolen in the first place?

Secure passwords are another barrier to preventing your account from being compromised.  Have you seen the news recently about various sites/businesses that are being hacked?  

If a multibillion dollar corp (or a multitrillion dollar world superpower government) can be hacked, why should a piddling site trading a made up currency be immune?

not sure if I've actually claimed my account or not... I got to the page that says they will review my claim, but thats not claimed really. I did have a pretty long secure password. hope that's enough to claim it.

me the same.

@MagicalTux

-> do we get further email if claim was succesfull Huh?

This means 'general if we get an email-confirmation' about the claim.

This means NOT how long it takes, its clear that its much work.

You can also use KeePass to store and generate secure passwords.

That's plain appeal to imagination.

A website isn't it's owners amount of currency or the power of a government. To quote a movie, "you are not your khakis".

The security of a website is measured in how well it's implemented, not how many dollars were thrown at the project. In the case of Sony and Mt. Gox it was clearly inadequate.

There are many, many smaller sites that are practically impossible to hack due to excellent security standards and skilled coders who stay up-to-date even on blackhat news.

Site meaning exchanges? Please link some and prove how secure they are.

Wow, guys  I dont think Id be using an online password generator. 
Call me paranoid, but any generated password could be going into a database somewhere and possibly used later for hack attempts.



Just change a couple characters and you're good to go.

Sites, as in websites. Not bitcoin exchanges.

Protip:

-launch "base64" in Terminal/Konsole
-let your cat walk on keyboard:  564174kl:mml;jbhçiyhvezf"dm;àiht-de"quté
-Ctrl+D to base64 this: NTY0MTc0a2w6bW1sO2piaMOnaXlodmV6ZiJkbTvDoGlodC1kZSJxdXTDqQo=
-pick a piece of the string: 6bW1sO2piaMOn
-add special chars, for fun: 6b!W1/sO+2piaM*%On
-> strong enough to Mt.Gox, proceed claim.

Also, do this when Mt.Gox successfully blocks incoming UDP (DDoS) and TCP (SYN flood).

If you don't want to use a password manager, write down part of your password but keep a portion of it just in your head.

Haha this is so cool.....I tell you that the problem is basically that all dictionary hacks are based on the english dictionary....really s****d. Just make your password in some other language. I am sure for example there is no dictionary about the complete possibilities say for example of all sanskrit words...forget hackers they would be in deep s**t trying to figure and crack a combo password of sanskrit and some french and some german words. right. I would say the problem is our limitation to english........

cheers
