This is F-ing stupid. I've been trying to get past step 2 for over an hour. Keeps timing out because his site is too busy.

MtGox claims lots of things, but seem to have issues with delivering.

Brute forcing is so much more possible now-a-days due to GPUs, but Brute forcing SHOULD also be impossible because any site worth a shit should be locking out after 5 or so failed attempts (personally I think 10 is plenty, it gives you a couple attempts to realize "oh wait I'm typing the wrong password, not typing it wrong, then a couple more to figure out which password you used)

I hate those sites that lock you out in 3 to 5 tries.  I have so many passwords I can never remember which one I used, so I have to poke each one in the likely order I used them.  I think they should give you at least ten tries.  Enough for someone who is forgetful like me, but way too few to break a password more complicated than a single digit number.

Site seems to be down. Is this just regular volume or is it being DDoS'ed?

It's trivial to add a foreign language to a password library isn't it?

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?  

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.

there is always a weak link.  Every site/network is hackable.

For those who are waiting for their claim to get processed, I have the following point:

I think that even if the first 20% of the claims will get processed reaaaly quick (like in 12 hours) the exchange will stay closed because MtGox will wait for the other - at least - 50-60% of the user DB to get their claims submitted. Reopening trade before the majority of the users is cleared would be just unfair! And of course those users above 20% will have forgotten about Mtgox and wont look into the issue for another week or two.

Keeping this in mind one can say that ETA for Mt.Gox exchange is at least 1 to 2 weeks, or even longer!

So everyone just relax in the mean time... :-)

"It would take about 6 trillion years for a desktop PC to crack your password"

(One that mtgox rejected as too simple)

"It would take about 288 duodecillion years for a desktop PC to crack your password"

(One that was accepted)

Clearly MagicalTux thinks bitcoin has a long future!  Grin


my password can be cracked in a billion years, but it accepted it as complex enough!

talk about Gox being irresponsible!!!  This is an outrage!!! Gox should be held to a higher standard.  They should require passwords with at least 1 trillion years average crack time.

The claim site is overloaded. I think Mtgox is just going to cash out on this one. Oh wait, they don't even have an exchange to cash out on.
