Just noticed this on bitcoinhop.com:

The site was hacked and will not be returning online.
If you were awaiting a payment, please send an email to bitcoinhop@gmail.com
with details about your account/item.

Does anyone have any further info? Seems strange that they will 'not be returning'.

I'm extremely pissed off.

1) Administrator isn't responding
2) I had 4 BTC worth of sales (Roughly $65)

I have a feeling this may have been a scam.

The site was too hard to manage. I asked biddingpond if he would like to would like to merge my site with his so it would be easier to manage, but he said the biddingpond staff didn't want to. So after being hacked, I just decided to close the site.

What? Why would I create a website just to steal 4 bitcoins from you? I told you I would contact the buyer less than 5 hours ago. At most, two payments were intercepted by the hacker, but neither of those were from items you sold.

Maybe you stole more than just 4, I just find it weird how it will never open up again. It was a great website, if you check the messages between the buyer and I. He was about to release the bitcoins to me, but couldn't find it. So could you please release them now?

I contacted him. Once he confirms it, I will send you the bitcoins. I can see the messages but I just want to be sure.

You really should not accuse people of stealing without some sort of evidence. Especially when the person is actually trying to work with you.

Well I apologize, Yesterday for acting the way I did. I just panicked.

To Yesterday: The buyer had no internet for 3 days, so I don't know if its on the frits.

Uh, now I understand what they meant when they called Bitcoin a hacker currency. Wink

What do we learn? Use #bitcoin-otc for trades!
Or at least think about whom to trust.

I think an exchanges and other should at least describe what they are doing for security.

We can confirm this.  We also extended an offer to work on a federated auction API protocol extension to BCSpec.

Yesterday, I think you should shop around for a buyer, there's probably a few people that would be interested.

If not, I'll get in touch again tomorrow.

Since this isn't re-opening is there any way that the details of the "attack" could be partially revealed ? As to what went wrong? Maybe help out others who are developing  Cool

The site may possibly re-open. Two people have offered to take over.

The hacker used an sql injection to gain access to the database. All the passwords were hashed with salt so they are harder to crack, but not impossible.

Ahh. Thanks for sharing! I was just genuinely curious =)


I hadn't ever used your site, but I liked it a lot. Hope it comes back.

Thanks, I've paid for half of what we agreed, and yesterday has sent me a password-protected RAR file of the site.

The domain name can't be transferred until 16 July, because of a 60-day rule imposed by the registrars.

So, we may need to wait until then to complete the deal.
