The event organizer Creation Office confirmed on Saturday that the personal information of creators who applied to participate in its Sunrise Creation (SC) dōjinshi conventions have been leaked onto the Internet. ITmedia News reports that the information was leaked through a virus that operates on the Winny file-sharing network. The Tantei File News Watch website adds that the leak became public on a thread dedicated to the Kintama virus on the 2channel forum on Friday. The names, addresses, telephone numbers, and other information of applicants to the SC 17 to 33 conventions as well as event staffers — over 20,000 people in total — are reportedly in the files that were leaked earlier this month.

The people who applied for or participated in the events in the leaked documents include the following:
