UPDATE: MTS is now down because of this issue. Good news – it will be fixed during tomorrow’s 6-hour maintenance. However, you might still get hacked. Click here to see a list of people whose information is in hackers’ hands. Please note that this list is ONLY character names, so search for your character’s name (use CTRL + F). The original list also had Nexon ID’s but it will not be posted. Credits to Penitent of BasilMarket for the list.
As some of you may be aware there is an exploit with the MTS that allows certain abusers to find your user ID. While we work on addressing this exploit please know that the MTS is safe to use and will not compromise your account as long as you have kept your password up to date with a secure PIC.
We greatly apologize for the inconveniences this has caused for our players. Thank you.

Seems ridiculous, I know. Not too long ago I warned you about MapleStory Adventures, and now it’s MTS.
However, this is much more serious. With MapleStory Adventures, I had no solid proof at all nor did Nexon say anything. Here, Nexon IS our proof.
Apparently, selling an item in MTS exposes your ID and password and hackers can get it. There have been reports of people being hacked because of this issue, however nobody trusted them till now.
The matter is serious. If you have anything in MTS, TAKE IT NOW. Don’t buy anything till it’s fixed.

No. Don’t use the MTS at all, even if your PIC is something like ‘HEJFOFNWIDKFBWK13378384773’. PIC is actually crackable and hackers will have no problem bypassing it.
This is your warning, get all the stuff you currently have in MTS and stay away from MTS until further notice. Many people are getting hacked lately, and you don’t need to be the next victim.
