Global Network of Hackers Steals dollars worth over 385,000 BTC From ATMs

Quote
The sophistication of a global network of thieves who drained cash machines around the globe of an astonishing $45 million in mere hours sent ripples through the security world, not merely for the size of the operation and ease with which it was carried out, but also for the threat that more such thefts may be in store.

Is the dollar safe? Should I sell all of my dollars until this security flaw is fixed?

The problem is the payment processing system for dollars employs very weak authentication and dollars are not intrinsically cryptographically secured. It's sad so many people are exposed to this risk.

Hardfork aren't that hard.

It saddens me to think of all the wasted cloth and ink that will now be needed to print more money to replace what was stolen.

Madness!

Dollar wins anyday! Because it has an intrinsic security mechanism that is infallible....you can just print more dollars to mitigate the loss! Cheesy

Breaking news! The chinese hacker returned the dollars, but the liquidator and lawyers have stored them at Fort Gox, allowing time to make sure they're returned to their rightful owners.

Meanwhile, back at MintLab...

The article makes it quite clear that this exploit can be carried out again.. Scary stuff.

When I first saw the title I thought someone or some website had been stolen of 385k actual Bitcoins.. That woulda been scary haha.

No worries. You're covered by insurance. You know, unlike Bitcoin.

A lot of these guys were caught, aka the dumb ones using cash machines watched over by CCTV. So not quite 45m anymore.
