Hi, first post for me, so newbie it hurts (heard about bitcoin 3 days ago). Looks like an awesome community here.

I signed up for the "bitcoin randomizer" a couple days back. Was surprised to see upon logging in that they are currently not accepting coin, and that they are "under attack."

What is going on with them?

Once a transaction has 6 confirmations, it is extremely unlikely that an attacker without at least 50% of the network's computation power would be able to reverse it.

There is a post on here that discusses some of the details.  In a nutshell, the server was hacked and someone set many of the payout addresses to two of his own.  Also, I think a few of the login credentials were also changed.

We haven't heard anything concrete from the owner for few days.

Check out the original thread for further details:

A Personal Quote on BTT from 2011:
"I'd be willing to make a moderate "investment" if the value of the BTC went below $2.00.  Otherwise I'll just have to live with my 5 BTC and be happy. :/"  ...sigh.  If only I knew.
