The leaked data has been posted to anonpaste.me and contains a huge list of personal information from all the users within the sites database as well as the short message below.
We have Dumped your users profiles and personal information to protest the fact that you go out of your way to to make sure music is not free online! This Is an old Op but we feel the need to bring it back
The type of information is names, address, payment information, address and sadly credit card information right along side the rest of the data all unencrypted.
If you are a user of this site it is very important that you voice your anger at the administration otherwise incidents like this will just continue to happen. Also if you are a user of this site consider updating and changing all possible information to prevent any further damage being done.
