It seems rather odd that the person who was hacked hasn't come forth and identified himself.

The hacked account could not have been a bitcoin wallet, it was an account on mtgox.  The first two poll options should be renamed.

You didn't put Satoshi as an option.

Fiat no more.

Why does everyone assume it was a single account that was hacked?  Couldn't it have been 50 accounts hacked, transferred to a single hacker account, then executed from there?

Then the hacker would be the owner of the account.  That's one of the reasons I put "The Hacker" in as an option.

I can assure you, if it were me, you wouldn't hear me identifying myself publicly.
What is there to gain?  Sympathy for Mt. Gox?

This poll is unamerican. It lacks "CIA" option.

This poll is antisemitic. It lacks "Mossad" option.

1) the owner was probably not online in the 50 minutes his account got hacked.
2) the owner probably did not have 500,000 coins in his wallet and were placed there through code vulnerabiity by the hackers
3) mt gox was shut down and the owner locked out. The owner would have no way of knowing his account was hacked.

If MtGox hadn't decided to do a roll-back, and it was your account that was hacked, would you have gone public?  

Remember, there was a period of time between the alleged hack and the decision to roll back.  Would you have been satisfied merely complaining to MtGox privately until the decision to roll back was made?

I understand what you're suggesting.  Added "Random User w/SQL injection" as option...

Random User w/ SQL Injection appears the most probable.  Answers the obvious question of why the hell would anyone keep 500,000 BTC on mtgox: they wouldn't.  the "BTC" were likely created out of thin air via malicious SQL statement.

It could have been a hacker that was using someone else's account that was just the one they dumped into.
