He refused to give his name to the press, also stressing he was not much older than 18.

Wow.  The things teens can do these days. Wink  I kind of feel sorry for the kid. He needs a good lawyer I would think.

Yupp -.-

I felt the site was sketchy form the start but I never imagined that it would go down like this.
The amount of BTC that I let is dust compared to others. So I don't feel to bad myself. Nevertheless BTC are BTC!

The users of Inputs.io were trusting a random person with their money rather than in the real world when you're dealing with cash, where you trust banks to look after your money

Just thought I'd post this for people out there to laugh at and that sucks I hope a similar thing doesn't end up happening to mcxNOW Sad

Inputs was not hacked through a flaw in the service, but rather through compromising a chain of emails that allowed the attacker to reset the password for the hosting account control panel.

Sorry to hear the news TF. Very bad luck and shows what a snake-pit the internet is.  Sad
