Heise, the major German IT news outlet reports about Bitcoin again by listing several hacks and going into detail about Bitfloor and Romney. Title in English would be "Bank robbery and blackmail with Bitcoins"

http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/Bankraub-und-Erpressung-mit-Bitcoins-1702157.html

Quote
Die Bitcoin-Börse Bitfloor ist offenbar gehackt worden, wobei die Angreifer rund 24.000 Bitcoin erbeuten konnten, was laut dem Kursrechner Preev derzeit ungefähr 207.000 Euro entspricht. Möglich wurde der Raub laut dem Börsenbetreiber Roman Shtylmann durch einen Zugriff auf unverschlüsselte Backups von Wallet-Keys. Mit diesen Schlüsseln konnten die Angreifer die Bitcoins transferieren.

The article is not good. First it was talking about 1 000 000 btc instead of US$. Also robbery ("raub") would involve violence and guns.

I consider the heise ecosystem pretty much anti bitcoin. The comments are mostly uninformed and negative.
