There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

I've always thought vircurex admin were noobs, looks like I might be right. There's a reason that exchange never gained popularity.

I agree, the site was always extremely buggy, needless to say I never trusted it and didn't leave my coins on there for long.

That's not true. They have quite some volume there. Everyone gets hacked at some point or another.

more or less retired.

Presumably only some trivially small percent of the money was in any hot-wallets so they'll easily cover it.

It just might take a lot of account / detective work to figure out exactly what balances or database entries or whatever the hackers messed with. Maybe they dropped all the tables from mysql or something. Whatever it is they seem to think they'll need all weekend to figure it out.

But yeah web is kind of crazy to use for money stuff. I use Open Transactions partly just because I am dubious any website can really be made secure, so many holes and exploits have happened, so many sites still get hit by sql injections and weird browser exploits and gosh knows what, its beyond your control as a website to secure it, as the browser is a huge attack-surface and is not under your control.

I like the fact that it doesn't have a trollbox used to manipulate pump and dumps like BTC-E does.

It seems they were affected by a 0-day exploit in their Ruby on Rails install.

pfft, trollbox is the best feature on BTC-E, one of the reason it become the most popular alt coin exchange. If there were any easy way to move USD there, it can probably beat mtgox.

DAMN IT MY DVC!! WTH!!

Devcoin is now officially dead. This hack killed the currency before it could crawl.  Either we lost all our devcoins or we will sell them all immediately. I know the first thing I'm going to do if I can access my Devcoins is sell them and I'm prett sure everyone else is thinking the same after seeing this news.

I had over 100,000 Devcoins too.

This sort of thing is pretty much expected at least once a month in the bitcoin universe.

Apparently Kumala said only BTC, LTC and TRC were affected.

So all the devcoins are fine it seems.

These are the kinds of incidents that will lead to the fall of cryptocurrencies. These hackers are greedy, sure, but they don't realize that their actions are going to hurt them in the long run, as well, when all of this comes to a crashing halt

Yeah its what happened to fiat pounds when that Great Train Robbery happened, thats why everyone switched to dollars. Until that big robbery where lots of dollars got stolen, so no one uses them anymore. So everyone switched to cryptocurrencies and damn robberies still happen, darn it.

Don't worry, the hacker didn't want any of the DVC garbage, vircurex was like the only place to sell it anyway. lolol
