They were the most popular, they were the biggest.
Of course that makes them the number one target as well.
And they did get attacked.
But why being so harsh towards them? Seriously, the hackers tried and will have kept trying to find a weak spot until they succeed.
This Sunday, they succeeded.
MtGox now just needs to handle the situation in a calm matter, which they are actually doing quite good:
The made some very good calls
1) They froze the websites and took the servers off line ASAP
2) They worked together with google to warn all the Gmail users ASAP
They are now handling the situation in an offline environment it seems, where they have everything under control.
What else do you expect them to do? Do you expect them to just go online just 5 hours after an attack, to make you all happy in the short term, but compromise everyone and everything in the process?!?
Give them a break, they are doing a good job at handling the situation and I respect them for it. Be patient, please.
They weren't proving and finding "new vulnerabilities"
Mt.Gox had very old and trivial misconfigurations that most security conscious administrator would have spotted immediately.
Considering the seriousness, sensitivity and the scale of this operation, it is unforgivable that it got taken down with these stupid exploits.
After the attack we demand transparency.
The only thing we got are lies.
It leaves much to be desired.
