Do you think this hacker cares?

He's kicking back and laughing at the fake currency he stole and got paid thousands for which will in all likelihood keep him a nice lifestyle for at least a decade.

a 'nice' lifestyle for about 200 coins? maybe nice compared to some little african tribe somewhere, but not by the standards of most of the world, at least at at any exchange rate we have seen thus far.


Maybe try running thru this short checklist when you think you may have something worth posting:

Have you thought about what you are going to post?
Does it makes sense?
Do you think it could be useful to others?

If the answer is 'yes' to all of these, then post.

Do the sums mate. $1,000 worth of coin at a price of 0.1. He could have as much as 10,000 BTC. Assume a price of $15 per BTC and that is $150,000.

Do you have any idea how long $150,000 will last in Vietnam? Even if the estimate is out, he can still live like a king there for a long time.

Why is all this such an interesting, addictive drama? I need to do something else, good night all...

Instead of backseat-modding, you should probably just hit "report" and be done with it.  No one is impressed.

Report me for what precisely?

Updated post with e-mail and link to where I has found it Shocked. If you visit vnnic.net.vn it has something on there about BTC and mass mailing. I'm not sure what it says, cause it is a different language.

There was a sell order for ~263k BTC @ $0.01 each, so whether they all sold or not - the guy only withdrew $1000, and the rest will be rolled back.

-> Somebody should look for a transaction of ~ 10.000 btc in the blockchain, so that we know that the hacker was so clever as we think. maybe he was not and the only amoumt was much smaler.

Uhum...you're off by a factor of 10. It's 100,000 bitcoins valued at 1.5 million at $15 each.
But we will only know the outcome of that after Mt Gox reopens and people see what is in their accounts that they can withdraw. Then, we'll know if bitcoins were actually stolen and approx how many.

Mt Gox claimed they had their bitcoins spread out into different accounts, but then also claimed they moved the 432,000 coins for protection off of their site. So, which to believe? We'll see.

I know, from experience, that the $1,000 btc withdrawn limit is based on the 24 hour average. After the sell off, the 24 hour average was about $4. That is only 250 btc.

That's approx the amount Mt Gox claimed they actually lost.
We'll see. You could be spot on.

Didn't they just get done saying that they took them at ~$4.50....

according to mt gox he got them at about 4.50 each. not a penny. the 1000$ limit is at the weighted price, not the days low

A smart hacker would have created 1000 accounts and used them each to withdraw $1000 of coins...

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.

That would have been smart. Fund each one with a bitcoins. Sell at $16, try to buy at $.02, then transfer out. Most likely they did not expect the price to crash so hard. I don't think it would have if the system didn't lock up and stop letting buy orders in. I know I would have offered more resistance if I could, and other people would have as well.

A very smart hacker would have shown all exchangers that hacking is a very possible threat, and security is of utmost importance, he would not have merely said he got in b/c nobody would believe him, and yet would not have wanted to make a massive blow to the system, he would have done exactly what he did for the good of bitcoin, the community, and the world. This 'attack' was not carried out by a malicious entity, but rather by someone who feels that what is in their best interest is what is in the best interest of us all.

You people do realize that MTGox was going to give all it's users info over to the Department of Justice, right?!!

If it's only 250 BTC, this attack was a warning not to go after Silk Road.
