Is the database cracked, or are they bruteforcing these accounts? I'm seeing more and more accounts hacked lately.

No, but Crunchyroll accounts are hot commodity on leak boards. Nowadays every single email/password combination the criminals can get their hands on is run against our login in a highly sophisticated manner in order to find working premium accounts. Other streaming sites like Netflix or Hulu have the same issue.

You just have to make sure to never use the same password on more than one site. Make them all as different as possible.

I would say something about anything being stolen that isn't nailed down or on fire, but I read about a bunch of firefighting equipment getting stolen from the scene of a wildfire today....

Something has gotta give.
