Dear Sir or Madam,

A few hours ago the Bitcoin trading website Mt Gox has been hacked. Malicious individuals have been able to obtain a database containing usernames, email address and encrypted passwords. This information has been posted publicly on the internet.

As a Bitcoin supporter I'm now sending a message to every email address contained in the hacked database. This is to warn you that your username, email address and password have been leaked. I therefore strongly advice you to change your passwords. If you have used the same password on different websites it's highly recommended to change your password on all of your accounts!

For a more secure alternative to Mt Gox, the community appears to be moving to TradeHill. So this is no reason to lose faith in Bitcoin itself. It must be seen as a warning that not every website can be trusted with your data however! Their link is http://www.tradehill.com/?r=TH-R15683 (Note: You can remove the Referral Code when registering if you want!) This is certainly not the only website where you can exchange Bitcoins, also check out http://www.thebitcoinlist.com/dp_bitcoin/bitcoin-exchange/

Sincerely,

A Bitcoin supporter
1CWSjov2N7ix41bZ8bJfHXkdLLbkUsG9Y7

I for one, think that TradeHill should block referrer TH-R15683 from any commission.

This is not the way we want to grow our business. At the very least we will remove all the referrals from this users account.

I want to make it very clear that TradeHill is not spamming the compromised user list from Mt Gox.

I'm with you on that one, just got the email as well.

I think they should go one step further and ban the account/email associated with it.

Go one step further.  Release email/ID associated with it so we can let him know what we think of using the panic as a money making opportunity.

How come no one has questioned where this jerk/spammer got all of our emails (I got one too).  So either the hacked DB was leaked (which I haven't read yet) or this guy was was involved.

Edit:
I just saw the link to the hacked database.  This guy is still a tool.

Umm... yeah, about that. You're a little behind. There is a leaked DB, everyone already has a copy.

Agreed, Devious little douche-bag capitalizing on the panic of others, cant say i didnt expect it though... there now exist a mailing list of say 80% of every seruois bitcoin user in existance.

I pulled the percentage outta my ass, its immaterial really. Just a large database valulable even without the passwords

I don't really see what's wrong with this. He even said you can remove the code. Besides that it actually is an informative email. He's just giving you a sort of voluntary place to tip?

I wouldn't say a thing, maybe just someone trying to get some cut of the compromised list.
But... Damn! 5 times the same email! At least I hope the s(c)pammer to control his spam machine to not send more than 1 email to each...

EDIT: Make it 7, while I was writing this got 2 more emails in the same box!

I'd save that for the guy that set up a website handling millions of dollars' worth of other people's money without even basic security precautions. At least those e-mails are vaguely useful. He or she is even recommending a sensible replacement for Mt Gox; as far as I know Tradehill's the only bitcoin trading site that no-one's found CSRF vulnerabilities on yet, which hopefully means they're actually taking security seriously.

Thank you, glad to hear action will be taken against this individual.  It's one thing to make a forum post, but a totally different beast to use the emails from the leaked DB.

For one thing MtGox already sent out a lovely "informative" Email to every effected user, and only one per user at that Grin. And They didnt try to drum up a few shillings out of the disaster like this chap

We simply cannot condone using stolen information to promote TradeHill.

No need to to go overboard. If Mt.Gox had NO security precautions then there passwords would have been in the clear, OR they would have actually lost the bitcoins out of their back end wallet.

Just because tradehill hasn't been compromised means absolutely nothing. Why would anybody even bother? All the current traders are on Mt. Gox. since you have no idea what security Tradehill has, then implying that they are doing something better then Mt. Gox is just spreading a false sense of security.
