Could simply mean that weak security was good enough when btc weren't so expensive, but now the instawallet model won't work. Trying to put a positive spin on this ... I'd hate to believe paymium is intentionally swindling people. If they were, there would be hell to pay.

Any news on how many claims are coming in Boussac?

Also, have you got the details of the crime reported with BEFTI? I need to pass the info to my insurance provider.

Thanks

A reasonable request methinks...

Still refusing to answer, Boussac? Smiley

Sure it's reasonable, hence Boussac putting him on his ignore list after he posted such a kind request. In his mind, it's fuck you and your insurance computer, for I got mine after all this time providing a free service to all you dumb fucks.

Here's a question: Does that mean that all the other principles are also ignoring this very important issue? Nary a one has come to our rescue. Sure the hell says a lot of them, don't you think? Time to hunt down their accounts and see if they too have gone dark just like davout.

This is Boussac's response when you ask for a police report number:

Unignore

I see how the game is played now: Hack your own sites, claim money was stolen, claim to fill out a police report, ignore all requests from those who entrusted you with their assets, then call them trolls for requesting a simple number to set them at ease.

You sir, are one sick mother fucker!

Couldn't agree more...

All ease aside, the one hint is the lack of a police report number (and possibly them being one sick motherfuckers).

Ignore




Meanwhile, I will have to wait till after the 90 days that he has set before I even have a chance in hell to ever see my bitcoins again.

This guy is one sick motherfucker!

Nope, they chose their hosting service.  If they chose a hosting service which allows password resets without adequate verification, that's on them, not the hosting service.  It'd be interesting to know if there was a more secure option available to them with OVH and they simply chose not to use it (which has happened in the past with other intrusions - the services haven't paid for full database back up or haven't utilised all the security options available to them).

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

^ if they had chosen a cheap crappy provider, then I would agree, but AFAIK then OVH isn't known for "being crappy" or use insecure/outdated software on their systems.

Hosting won't keep you safe if the actual source code is vulnerable. The only way to protect is to see how the attacks happen. That is what we do when we work with clients. We check logs to see what really is going on. In this case it sounds like it is the code and not web hosting.
