Mega passwords breached

Postby legoboyvdlp » Thu Jan 17, 2019 9:12 pm

Some people here used Mega to distribute files - if you have a Mega account and used the same password for anything else, change it ASAP: Mega appears to have been hacked at some point last year. Same goes for 000webhost and a few other services as well.

If you want to check your account, try googling 'have I been pwned' :)

I was about to sign up on Mega yesterday, I just installed gnu into an imac, got no keyboard detected,need to stack a bunch of files, I tried demo, but FUD took me not to sign up.

Thanks for reporting

Damnit, I use MEGA. The good news is my MEGAdrive has a unique password on it, so I just change it and am ok...

I have fixed MEGA as warez source and what is warez, that is not secure. I don't use MEGA.
