title is misleading. it's hardly a "mega-hack", nor is it about bitcoins.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

"Last Monday at around 5 p.m. 25,000 Bitcoins were transferred from 478 accounts on the currency's largest exchange".

Does someone know something we don't?

I thought AllinVain had everything in one account. No?

Where do the 478 accounts come into play?

In the same article a few paragraphs down....

"On Monday at around 5 pm, 25,000 bitcoins were transferred into account "1KPTdMb6p7H3YCwsy FqrEmKGmsHqe1Q3jg".  The coins in question came from 25,000 accounts."

So is it 478 accounts or 25,000 accounts?

Not sure it is a "Mega-Hack" but it certainly is about bitcoin.

There is some pretty poor research in this article though.  After providing a link to the password file, they go on to report that they don't know if the salt was per-user or site wide.  It is pretty easy to figure that out.  Here's one entry:
$1$yHWqORNr$rRF7U59c9UY9utiW/ZnF..
The stuff between the second and third $ is the salt, "yHWqORNr".  Here's another entry
$1$eVe/yQrF$HNws4a6lsEuUCvvUHZPil/
See how the salt is different?  "eVe/yQrF" so there were per account salts.
