News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

Dear Mt.Gox users, we have been warned of a possible breach in Bitscapler’s (Bitscapler.com) user database, exposing user’s login and password information.

We are still waiting for an official announcement from Bitscalper about this leak, however we strongly suggest that any Mt.Gox’s users who use Bitscapler.com and who also happen to use the same credentials for both services, update their Mt.Gox password as soon as possible.

Thank you for your understanding.

In three instances in the original post and in the thread title, read "Bitscapler" as "Bitscalper".

Scalp is a verb, the relevant meaning of which is: To buy and sell securities or commodities for small quick profits.  Thus, scalper, noun:  one who scalps.
