The coincidence in the timing of the Bitcoinica hack and the leak of the FBI memo of Bitcoin sparked a number of conspiracy theories speculating that the two events might somehow be linked.

Rob Rachwald, director of security strategy at Imperva, commented: "The Bitcoin attack introduces an interesting paradigm: hackers hacking hackers may be more effective than direct law enforcement activity. Like a mafia war where criminals kill each other, law enforcement just sits back and sees who’s left."

Bitcoin exchanges need code reviews, vulnerability assessments and Web application firewalls, Rachwald said. However, the question is whether honest security vendors would sell to such organizations, giving bitcoin's association with cybercriminal activity, he said.

Reports of the Bitcoinica hack came on the same day that Wired published an unclassified FBI report detailing the bureau's concerns regarding cybercriminal use of the semi-anonymous virtual currency. As Threatpost has reported, Bitcoins, which can be exchanged anonymously, are being targeted with more frequency as well. Earlier this year, hackers compromised the cloud service provider, Linode, and emptied the bitcoin accounts of eight customers, totalling around $14,000.

As anonymity is part of this currency's concept, stealing a digital wallet has the same effect as losing a physical wallet: the money is lost.
