Seriously?
Do you really need to make a thread about one sentence in the trollbox?

The BTC-E trollbox is about as reliable as a pair of clown shoes in a minefield.

It wasn't just trollbox, it was btc-e support saying that vircurex was hacked.  So maybe a bit more reliable.  Then 1 min later btc-e went down.

Hopefully just DDOS on both...

There has been no formal news of any vircurex hack, quite the contrary, some recent downtimes have been UI updates etc. from the vircurex team themselves.  Is btc-e rightfully starting to fear and fud vircurex now that vircurex is stepping their game up and growing market share hand over fist?....  It's the btc-e trollbox for a reason....

I just trusted my wallet to Vircurex yesterday to buy some DVC. Knowing my luck, they probably did get hacked.  Cry

Good thing I only put in what I could afford to lose.

My bet is on DDOS...they've been happening frequently....We were all pimply faced little brats at one time  Wink

DDOS attacks, while disruptive and irritating, are nothing of any grave concern. Probably not a server in the world that hasn't been hit by DDOS at one time or another. No sense in hitting the panic button just yet.

Things like this are for the better of the entire currency system really, it helps make networks more secure.

Of course, I agree that all the effort would be much better spent on disrupting the threats to our world. But then, who knows for certain what the real threats are?

Vircurex is back up with the following disturbing message:

Quote
The system is not available, we are aware of the issue and are working on it

I hope it's not the case of "The coins are not available(not anymore)".

Their server was overloaded due to traffic spike over the last two days, they are switching to a dedicated server as we speak. This is from their twitter account and the official thread.

The coins are fine. Virucex has tweeted saying the wallets are safe, they haven't been hacked, and they hope to be back up by Monday.
