When i see that in my faucet adbit ads are not showing, i just goto adbit.co and found the below message posted by them;

 

September 18, 2015
On the 17th of September at around 9:30 AM UTC AdBit was hacked.
A total of 6 BTC was stolen (~$1,400), the amount the hot wallet had at the time. The remaining funds (cold wallet) are safe.
The problem isn't the loss of the bitcoins, since we can easily cover it, it's the method the hacker used, as we could not find out how he did it after many hours of cautiously looking at the code and logs.
This leaves no other option but to close the website for a complete code rewrite.

Meanwhile, you can email h...@adbit.co using your account's email address so we can refund your balance (both publishers and advertisers).

There is currently no date estimation for when the website will be back up.
We were always honest and transparent with our users and that will never change.

Carlos L.

They get no idea where is the fault in their coding. Hope they will return back soon and good thing is that they have not stored so much of bitcoin in their hot wallet.

   Provably fair DICE, SLOT and BLACKJACK

Well, yeah. They announced it a short while ago in their thread already. You're late to the party. Wink

And I doubt they will be hacked again because of the precautions they will undergo this time.

If life gives you lemons, make orange juice and leave them wondering how you did it.

Too bad. I have seen ads not showing in the sites that I use to visit everyday and was wondering what had happened.
