I don't make accounts to read mangas.

I'm like dine-n-dash. I read and then zoom, gone.

I hope you mean black hat, rather than just hacking in general.

Yep, again. Was last hacked sometime August last year.
No idea why they do that. Just to mess with people I guess. I'd say they're just high-level trolls.

The same reason why people would hack any other website, for the email and passwords. Hackers and other scum will first try to use that password to enter the email since people do use the same password on website accounts for the email, and if the hacker is successful he/she will have total access to that account and use it to salvage other valuable information like bank accounts or other email accounts.
However, even if it hacker cannot get access to the email, it will be forever saved in some criminal deepweb/deepnet archive for other people to attempt to crack it, so once an email is leaked you are in constant attack.

Even worse is mangatraders used a very minimal encryption security for the passwords, so gaining control for those accounts is even quicker with the modern tools or even old methods like dictionary cracking.

Some people do use the same email for everything or similar emails for other things, so that is a major threat. People thinking that the hackers will just mess around with the affected accounts (like changing lists) should think again.

Never had a mangatraders account and I use a unique password for MAL, so I should be in the clear.

MAL was hacked too in 2011 and 2013. Did you change your password as well?

Mainly doing it to show we can.


Doing it to show you can only has mass effect on big corporations. Small niche websites like MAL really don't matter.
As far as black hats are concerned..well they can fry for all I care.

Must not have been big anime fans that did it, otherwise they would know most shows are on break right now.

That's explains why some episodes are marked as viewed for series I have never seen before.
