Nice, I didn't know TPS had this, just added it nowIt's actually not important what specific site got affected. Any of them could have gotten compromised at any time. The important thing is be wary that it can and has happened at your trackers.
P.S. If your tracker has 2-step verification, use it. Do it for TPS as well. I have.
Where are you getting this information from? Stolen information is sold to spammers, not marketing companies who will push anything from malware downloads, phishing emails to steal more valuable account information and drive traffic to things like fringe/illegal porn and of course online pharmacies.Generally speaking, stealing DB's is a practice that is conducted to attain email addresses they can then sell to marketing companies.
Better late than never. I used to use a fairly simple password and only 2 or 3 different ones. I was lucky to get good advise a while back and got a good password manager. Since I've been using a strong unique password on each account. I highly recommend everyone do that or you put your account and the tracker at riskSomeone recently managed to hack my GG account, along with a few hundred/thousand users' accounts.
I contacted the staff, and they told me not only my account was affected, but others as well.
My password was not very safe though, since then I changed pswds on all trackers (and now using different for each)
I have always used 1Password, just not for my torrent accounts. I was lazy, and I generally like to know my passwords by heart, so I use 5-6 different ones for everything, and used only one of them for all my accounts. - BAD IDEABetter late than never.
