Disclose quickly The website disclosed the hacking on the first day. They contacted victims and forced to change passwords and re-login. CPRewritten did its best to keep accounts and their data safe.
Change password All passwords are saved as high standard Bcrypt hash, which should be safe temporarily. However, the algorithm isn't a magic shield and might be decrypted by attackers with enough time on their hands. So, users have to update the password the earlier the safer.
Help underage victims As for leaked email and other personal information, CPRewritten doesn't have a settlement plan. Parents and adults have to keep an eye on young victims from cybercriminals driven by the leaked private data.In January 2018, CPRewritten suffered the first data breach that exposed about 1.7 million unique email addresses. The company hid it from the public until HIBP announced it more than a year later, in April 2019. Comparing with the previous breach, the company's actions have big progress.
