Update regarding OpenSSL vulnerability

Dear Bitstamp Clients,

Bitstamp is now secure from the reported OpenSSL vulnerability.

Account registration and login functionality have been restored. All API keys have been reset. Finally, withdrawals will be restored by 8:00 GMT tomorrow.

We want you to have the most secure service possible. If you have not already done so, please enable two-factor authentication. It only takes a few minutes to set up and will help ensure the safety of your funds.

Two factor authentication guide:

Thank you for understanding.

Best regards,
Bitstamp team

And if they are unlucky/stupid to have just everything in 1 wallet ...

A bug in OpenSSL, used by Bitcoin-Qt/Bitcoin Core, could allow your bitcoins to be stolen. Immediately updating Bitcoin Core to 0.9.1 is required in some cases, especially if you're using 0.9.0. Download.

First of all, bitcoin doesn’t have a CEO. It’s a crypto-currency, not a company.

Quote
the “suicide” headlines on sites such as the New York Post, the Daily Mail, and Fox News are based on anonymously sourced reports in “local media.”

Quote
And even if she did commit suicide, how do we know it had anything to do with bitcoin’s troubles? We don’t.

Quote
And for the record, suicide is rarely the result of any single cause.

8  Other / Meta / Important Announcements - pls make it more IMPO and more ANN on: March 05, 2014, 10:25:43 PM
Basically nothing new happened from Nov and from 0.8.4?

My suggestion - make it like (half)official ((Sub)Forum) NEWS ...
I mean smtg like mtgox crash, major rls of TOP5 bitcoin clients for every OS, notice if some run (20% a day or 5% and hour) up or down, some hacks, ... just "Important Announcements".
Like 1-5/weeks - depends on whats happening. Not like 20/month, than like 0/3 months ... Roll Eyes

So one (not me) doesn't have to follow 5 RSS or 20 websites, but just 1 link to check for most important ANN.
And last 3 can go to "TOP" - where "News: Bitcoin 0.8.6 is now available. Download." is right now.

Thank you  Wink

I have a domain that I use to create unique emails for signing up at all kinds of services. It's all explained at bustspammers.com. Today I received this email:

---------------------------- Original Message ----------------------------
Subject: [MtGox] Dear Clients ..
From:    "MtGox" <accounting@mtgox.co>
Date:    Sat, March 1, 2014 12:29 pm
To:      "[redacted]" <[redacted]@bustspammers.com>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear MtGox Customers,
Please sign the papers attached, we can complete the process of closing the account
and send you what the balance to another Wallet Address.

Download Documents

This is the plain-text version. In the original HTML email, the "Download Documents" link led to a page on deseobc.com distributing malware (a .pif executable, they attempted to make it look like a .pdf). This means one of three things:

    Bitstamp is actively pushing malware onto their own clients.
    Someone stole Bitstamp's email list.
    Bitstamp sold their email list to scammers.

Knowing that many Bitstamp users likely were also Mt.Gox users and might be easy targets, provides an obvious motivation for a scam. I asked Bitstamp for comment, will update this post if I hear anything back.

Quote
Bitstamp's email list was confirmed stolen ~2 weeks ago, when a boatload of emails claiming to be from support@btcguild.com (but not sent from any of the BTC Guild mail servers) went out talking about a 3.201 bitcoin transfer. After replying to the people shouting at me for being a scammer, I was eventually able to narrow the source of the leak to Bitstamp at the very least, and likely a few other sources on top of it.

I informed Bitstamp that they had at least a breach on their email list, if not the rest of their system. At first they denied it, but in a follow up they eventually admitted to it.

They then sent out a little security update email mentioning 2FA/password security.


I can confirm 3 same email "from" mtgox"

A recent phishing scam has been pretending to be from support@btcguild.com. This email did not come from us, and is trying to spread a virus.
