seems online banks get hacked frequent enough and it isn't the end of the USD yet Tongue
If people paid you in bitcoins for a product, you need to ship that product regardless if you are now out of the money.
It isn't their fault your security was lax.

Can you provide the details of how you were hacked for the benefit of the community? And if you'd like, include the actual IP addresses and times of the attacker (remove your own IP address if you want) so that perhaps the attacker can be identified and if the attack source was itself compromised, appropriate notifications can be sent. This will also help people to believe you, if you care about that.

 Because it was reasonable to foresee that a hack was possible (anybody read the news), OP can't claim it's all the hacker's fault.

Yeah, and if a thief breaks into your house, you can't really blame the thief because you know that locks can be picked, it's partly your fault for not staying in your house all the time with an automatic weapon.

be careful. In the states if a thief falls through a skylight and lands on a knife, you could be held liable. Doesn't really apply for bitcoins, but still funny.

Help Bitcoins by buying clothes, technology, books, etc. through people/stores that accept BTC. This will increase overall value of BTC as well as mitigate unnecessary bank transaction fees.

But if 5 of your 10 neighbors say "I left the door unlocked and I got robbed this weekend", and the cops tell you "Lock your doors" and you dont, then you go to the cops and say "I got robbed!  I left my door unlocked, but you didn't stop them! The police department should reimburse me, as should all of my neighbors!"

Hello Thomas,
You are a network Admin at CNY-Media in Hannibal New York.
You should know what a log file looks like, and you should be able to prove this hack with little effort.

The buyers have your name, phone, address, business address, facebook account, etc.

I'd suggest refunds all around.

Good day.

Assuming this is legit, I'm really sorry for your loss. 

security problems are going to be the end of bitcoin.

I agree.

Some of you need to relax.

Do you think bitcoin is the first financial system ever to experience hacker attacks?

Check your security and give it a rest.

I just re-read the thread and I don't see the place where he asked for me or anyone else to reimburse him.

I look at it this way, if 1 of your neighbors says "I had the house locked and someone still broke in" I'll be more careful,  If 5 of them say it I'll be even more careful (like change my locks), each report I hear I'll increase my vigilance.  It is very useful to hear about them to get an idea of the magnitude of the problem.  If, after all that, I still get my house broken into, I'll tell my neighbors and it is still the thief's fault.

Well that's certainly interesting.

Did an employee of a New York based online reputation management firm just happen to scam a bunch of people out of their Bitcoins?

i am going to get sued because some hacker scum bag








He's already telling everyone he isn't planning to pay back. He is outright lying about this obviously imo. I wouldn't trust this guy. I knew it was going to end badly when I saw the ad. Too bad people lost hard earned btc over this. I'm 100% sure he isn't paying back anyone.

Yeah, people are quick to jump on him. We can speculate about his motives about any number of imagined facts.

I am curious about the distribution of Linux, what services were running, how many users, type of networking (wifi?), how often the system is updated, and (since I assume the password has been changed) what the password of the victims account was.

Obviously trying to run with 400BTC making this public to look like he was robbed.

Not one single reply after his initial fud post.

I hope the people who gave you 400BTC (if this is even true, might just be another BTC hater) come after you.

So is this a (poorly) hatched ruse to cover your ass when you start getting questioned by the people you stole from?

Or is this a legitimate case of poor security resulting in coinage loss.


Stay tuned to find out!

security problems are going to be the end of bitcoin.

I agree with this. Or at least are the single largest problem facing the community at the moment.

BUT this post seems fishy as hell.
