A few glaring errors in the article such as people transfer money by trading their keys. You would think that the BBC reporter would  get it better than that. But then given the frequency of grammar and spelling errors on their site and the deadlines they probably have I guess accuracy isn't so important to them.

But that also reminds us that these funds could have been already spent in exactly that non-typical way - a thief could exchange hot coins at a discount by simply trading the key, washing his hands of the problem of utilizing them.

Curious that it's believed they were stolen from Moscow. I wonder if this represents more investigating than just looking up an IP.
