Thanks for the heads up about this. Thankfully I started using unique passwords YEARS ago. I couldn't give up most of my passwords if my life depended on it. I'll make sure to change this one at least.

Just a heads up guys, the database from ComicRack has been compromised.Even worse is that CLEARLY the passwords of the end users have been stored in a CLEAR TEXT format ( or a format that is easy to reverse ), instead of a hashed password.

Some spammer sends out emails with passwords trying to blackmail people with some b*s story about how they found your password on a porn site and you need to pay them.
I know xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx one of your password. Lets get directly to point. You don't know me and you are probably wondering why you are getting this email? There is no one who has compensated me to check about you.

actually, I actually placed a malware on the xxx streaming (porn) website and do you know what, you visited this web site to experience fun (you know what I mean). While you were watching video clips, your browser started functioning as a Remote Desktop having a keylogger which gave me access to your display and cam. Just after that, my software gathered your entire contacts from your Messenger, Facebook, and e-mail . After that I made a double-screen video. First part displays the video you were watching (you have a nice taste haha . . .), and second part displays the view of your web camera, yea it is u.

The passwords they used to "prove" this, was tied to this forum only. So people, RESET YOUR PASSWORDS on any website that uses the same password as this one, because clearly this database is compromised!

I am posting this in this topic, because a lot of people may have it on their watch/email responds. The rest of the forum is getting spammed ( what i assume is done to hide any posts regarding the database theft ).

And let me state this again: DO NOT PAY THESE PEOPLE! Its a bluff. And again, CHANGE your password on EVERY website that you used this password ( preferably a unique password per website ).

It is moments like this that make me happy that I use a PW Manager - Thanks for the Heads up ;)

Waiting for Jriver Media Center to pick up where ComicRack left off. They do everything else. They might as well do comics too. :P

TBH, I wouldn't expect a media server like that to stream comics: digital comics aren't the same type of media as a movie or an audio file.

Have you checked out my project (ComiXed) yet?

I have just tried using ComiXed, and it certainly looks pretty good, I like the interface and it seems pretty fast, but unfortunately all my comics are in webp format and it doesn't seem to read be able to pull the cover image, can you please support this format?

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the kind words.

I think we exchanged a message or two previously, didn't we? I remember someone mentioning WebP support back before I switched ComiXed from being a desktop app to a web-container. I have an issue (github.com/mcpierce/comixed/issues/3) to add support for WebP. I think that would be as simple to do now (as opposed to before), so will try and knock that out in the next day or so.

If you'd like, please keep an eye on that ticket and when it's closed try the app again. :D

It wasn't me who messaged you previously, but I will certainly keep an eye on progress, I am excited to see the future for your program. :woohoo:
