I received an email that my account had being compromised so I changed my password right away, at first I thought some other site where I had used the same email and password was hacked and one thing let to the other, but I soon found out that there is a text file with over 400 accounts from Crunchyroll that was barely posted on 09/30/17, so I would like to know how that happen and if Crunchyroll is doing anything about it. I won't link to the passwords, but anyone who read this might want to change their passwords just to be safe.

A good way of checking if one has been effected is to check on http://haveibeenpwned.com/

Even if you haven't been compromised, it'd still be a good idea to change your password just in case.

Thanks for sharing this info hellsketch.

It is definitely sourced via other breaches. Those fraudsters collect working credentials they find and compile them into service-specific files that they then sell or share online.

Thanks to the two of you for your answers. I was just worried that it was a leak from here.
