For discussion, I repost our top of thread status here:


Update:

There is an attempt at a CSRF in the wild right now aimed at bitoption.org. It tries to send 20 BTC to an address starting with: 1GEwYPX6..

I reviewed our balance sheets and transaction log; nobody has been hit by this or any other CSRF to my knowledge; I manually reviewed back four days of transaction, and scanned the rest for repeated withdrawal requests to confirm.

That said, someone has clearly posted an image link, likely in these forums, which directs to sendBTC?etc.etc. This image link will not function, and has not been successful against bitoption.

The site is down right this second, I am putting in a few layers of protection against this, and will update when it's in place.

In the interim, if you would like to exercise your contracts, please email me at admin@bitoption.com FROM your account email, and I'll manually fill your requests, including withdrawals if you need.

I anticipate a few hours to get this sorted out; there will be a slight impact on API developers as well.

Sorry, this is my bad; I thought about XSS but not CSRF when I implemented the API. My hope is that the damage is limited to a little downtime for you all. More here and in the status thread as it comes!

Yep. We went down 10 minutes ago; I just got notified.

There is some sort of problem with our hosting provider; I've filed a critical level ticket, updates here shortly.

Update: there's a DDOS attack against our provider and node. Could be due to us, could be something else. More as I get it.

We're back up; our provider seems to have things under control; no notification though. I'm probably on the hunt for better hosting. We'll see.

Makes it hard to trade, all this security / DDOS-ing type stuff! Bad for business.. Smiley

Hunter, we're back up now; Our register function wasn't smart enough to get past the anti-CSRF stuff we put in.

Sorry about that! Try again.

THe expired option are now correctly gone from the "my contracts" section, but my funds are still in escrow. I have an extra 4 BTC and $10 being held in escrow compared to what I should, all from freshly expired options.

Was just about to say the same thing Damien.

My guess is he perhaps wants to wait until Mt. Gox come back online, although being able to trade options now would be a good hedge against what price btc will be at when Mt. Gox comes back online.

Yep, and the market is doing some really interesting stuff right now. I'd like to get it sooner rather than later.

Now it's unresponsive. I'm logged in, but I can't see my balance or contracts. Previously, I could log out and back in again to get it to work. Now it won't even log out. The browser seems to sit there doing nothing.

Come on BitOption, where are you? I can understand having problems as a result of the Mt. Gox fiasco and API changes, but you're leaving us all in the dark as our contracts tick down. You risk losing our trust and market share if you don't at least provide us with an update! BitOption is still in a fragile infantile stage of development. It's a critical time for you to show your commitment to this project.
