Bitcoin Exchange robbed again


Bitcoin part at 0:43:55  to 0:45:26

"In the past on this show we've talked about bitcoin a little bit... and from time to time stories are out about bitcoin.. specifically.. usually negative stuff.. and today is no different... the hackers apparently broke into a bitcoin exchange, stealing $90,000 in bitcoins.  This is the bitcoin exchange site Bitcoinica... suspended it's operations this past friday after hackers had managed to steal 18,547 bitcoins.
So apparently the user database was compromised as well - so umm.. it's huge."
