In the spirit of describing what this thread's about because I don't want a member jumping in on page 12 and stating he/she wished the OP would have gone into greater detail in his first post but since he didn't I'm now late to the party, I offer up the following.

I may have accidentally stumbled upon who Tom Williams is late last night. But after four hours of reading with 17 tabs open (I normally only have 3-4 opened--at the very most), I was too tired to...yada yada yada! The title to this thread should be enough to pique interest, let alone know what it's about.

I'm running late in getting a load of lumber delivered, so allow me to just post a couple links now. When I get back, I don't want to see this moved to Off-Topic.

First, I found this: http://dump.udderweb.com/Censorship/mtgox_leak.txt

From info gleaned there, I found this: redacted for the time being--believe I linked the wrong Tom from my tangled mess

I don't have time now, but I'm also able to link Russian connections. (allinvain may also prove interesting)

Full disclosure: I'm not a member of SA and I've only visited, then started to read, their thread on Bitcoin two days ago (I find it an interesting read). My biggest fear now is that they may do the digging and take full glory in any discoveries before I have an opportunity to present what I've uncovered. But, such is life!


major edit job here by me, BRUNO.

Allinvain seems to have been running some sort of e-money exchange website back in 2007.

http://alansmoney.blogspot.com/

Email at the top of the page matchs the email in the MTGOX dump

Here's another site.

No where on either site does he mention getting robbed for BTC.

Same guy as the OP.  Different guy than mybitcoin.com imho.   And I also doubt Tom Williams is his real name.

But I did have to take a second glance when I clicked 'Updates' on his profile.  Smiley

That could be just what he does for a living. Maybe he would use open source but BoA won't let him.

I was there. everyone had to introduce themselves while standing. it was very awkward but nobody skipped a beat. I guess he could have been there and used a fake name but it is unlikely. also why would he have attended? what could he possibly have gained from that?

Interesting.  A web programmer for a bank - that is pretty much exactly who you would be looking for to be behind a site like mybitcoin.com and he just so happens to have the same name.

Am I naive in thinking that the exchanges (mtgox) must have quite a clue what happened to mybitcoin's coins
and who the person is behind the website? Did they ever make a statement saying they knew nothing
that could help?

I'm back now, but going to take a nap. I had it all laid out this morning (when the sun was coming out) but had to get some shut eye. If I tried to do it now, I would eff it all up. But let me leave you with this, if my memory serves this tired brain correctly, a close fried on Tom Williams directly links to Bruce. Without opening up a tap and double checking, there's this Russian dude who signed up to Mt. Gox between Bruce and Ed (not the only Russian connection I uncovered). Also double check the first couple or so names after Ed signed up. The trip today wore my ass out for even during driving I kept rolling this information around in my head.

People were openly bashing the guy there.  If he was there then he has nerve.  I know because the flexcoin table had the most people asking "are you another mybitcoin".   Mostly because it just happened and was fresh in everyone's head...  Including mine..  We still have some legacy from it.  For example flexcoin has a 15 confirm policy due to what Tom "claimed" happened.

Paranoid maybe but that diaster in focus did up the standard for security..   

Even if security wasn't what happened..  My feeling was theft but I dint know.  I never had coins at mybitcoin...

I heard the rumor that he was there too but there is nothing credible backing that up.

They were also talking about some Swedish guy with a backpack stealing laptops.  I never heard anything about it here, so I figured they might've been just making it up.

I think "Tom Willams" may be Vietnamese...

According to bitcoinfeedback.com, the username 'wildtigon' is associated with mybitcoin.com

Quote
wildtigon's Business or Real Name: MyBitcoin LLC
Email Address: tien.dat79@yahoo.com
Website: https://www.mybitcoin.com/

Source: http://bitcoinfeedback.com/viewuser.php?id=195

After a bit of googling, I found wildtigon is really into high power GPU processing as he posted that he was impressed with this fellow's rig here: (post #11) http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?211727-Celeron-E1200-Aircooling-run-Great-results&p=3520070&highlight=#post3520070

wildtigon has a mostly blank webpage at http://wildtigon.multiply.com/   The title of the page is 'Nguyen's Site'

So, I then did a google search for 'wildtigon Nguyen' and a crap ton of sites came up, but everything is in Vietnamese.  But from what I have been able to translate, this person has been heavily involved in high power GPU processing for quite some time.

Perhaps someone who can read Vietnamese might have better luck in digging deeper...  


Edit: also, googling his email address also gave numerous hits. He is a member on another forum with 767 posts...but all in chicken scratch I can't read.  http://vozforums.com/member.php?u=674200

actually, I just checked the link.  Turns out the bitcoin quote is in his forum signature, which gets put on all your old posts as well as new ones.  However they do seem to be talking about "BTC" and "money" but its not clear in the translation.

Oh yea... his mining rig stats WERE in his sig...didn't notice.  It's so hard to make heads or tails of what they are talking about.

But I am pretty sure that if someone could read Vietnamese they could find all kinds of info on wildtigon.

I didn't loose any money at MBC, so maybe someone with vested interest can look into it further.

Well, that was a long frickin' nap. This 51 y/o body can't handle 10x10x12 oak beams like it used to (couple that with 90+ degree heat, not including the heat index).

I'm now going to try to recreate what I discovered last night. Bear in mind, it was 24 hours ago and I was tired then--things started to blur. But there were eureka discoveries nonetheless, uncovered via a methodic and logical approach. I wish now I still had those 17 tabs still opened. I'll be adding in the original post a tidbit section that may, or may not, have to do with this thread's title. In fact, I'll have two labeled Tidbits: & Misc. Tidbits:(MT), where the MT is definitely not directly related/relative.

I would love to map this out in a visual manner, but the using of that technology somewhat eludes me.

That said, I now begin my re-searching of this topic to share with you all. I'll add the first bits of info to this post along and, at the same time, populate the original post with what I just outlined, above.


e. Just redacted info on TW in original post--was brought to my attention via a PM and, upon double checking, I don't believe that is the same Tom I had my pieces linked together. I'll let the MT stand for now, though. Still working on it now. Sorry for the delay. Mega reading to get back up to speed. Did find out, though, that if you wet an alpaca sock prior to...(would have to read my past posts to get the joke).

One more thing--this Russian stuff has me a tad spooked. Don't they have a mafia or something? May have to be careful what I disclose here.

Why is it that the first person I was trying to cross reference this to is Anonymous? This is the first time I've seen this name used. It may be a dead end, but does anybody know who this guy is/was?



By the way.. if someone can tell me how to upload ONE file containing more charts, I would be happy to publish more, but I am wasting hours to try getting these files small enough to get under the maximum file size to attach here in this forum  Huh

Perhaps you could link to an external file on a public dropbox? https://www.dropbox.com/help/16

Then you just move the file to the dropbox on your machine and it syncs to the web.

http://www.dropbox.com/referrals/NTc2ODM4MjM5  
  If you use that link we both get an extra 250mb of storage lol. (you get 2gb to start with.)
 
Here is the last pdf you created.
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7683823/101101%20BTC.pdf



Just figured out how and why to use a horizontal line. Perhaps it would have been better to have Get Smart on this case than me.

Fugitaboutit, eh!

I had to think about your post for more than a second to conclude that you are being humorous due to my mafia comment. The reason it took so long, on my part, is because I just made note (in my notes) about an Italian cafe in CA related to this re-search (instead of research because I'm trying to retrace my steps from last night when it was all somewhat clear). Therefore, I thought you were dropping a subtle hint.

Just now saw the wink while in proofreading mode.

I'm the who has this all ass backwards. I'm now up to 16 tabs opened and the first time I want to check a lead on this board, the guy's anonymous. Why would somebody want to hide their identity here?

Todd Williams of Media 1 Designs? really? I am curious to know what info led this direction but I am just not feelin' it here.


Do keep up the search though. We're bound to find a solid connection some where in cyborg space.

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

 Forgive me, but I'm having a hard time following.  Media 1 designs(Todd) built the website for Pacific and likely registered it for them as well using his wife's(assuming) info for the registration. Both companies are located in Huntington but I am having a very hard time connecting any of them to Tod Williams from the forclosure site or more importantly Tom from MBC..
 Please do elaborate on the connection leading there.


Speaking of the forclosure site I noticed that 'posistive' poster Arturo(sp?) was left off the list that was posted here of posters who made 'positive' posts there.

I think I remember seeing that on SA when I first starting reading that thread a couple days ago. Now I can't go to the thread for it says I have to be a member to read it. Did they change something over there?

FYI: The first and last case I tried to help solve on the internet still has that little girl missing in Florida missing.

Yes they do. But I was thinking the Cuban Missile Crisis and that Cuba is a Communist country having/had Russian ties. And don't even try to think that I've somehow tied this in with the Kennedy assassination, although I did find this book warehouse...

I'd say that's a stretch. I have family from communist Germany and the ties were much more direct, and not one of them speaks Russian. I mean, it's certainly possible any given Cuban (or German) speaks Russian, and perhaps more probable than for, say, any random American. But this is a false approach to logic.

Met a Canadian last week who'd never heard the word "hoser" before.

It was an 80's thing mostly, and mainly in Eastern Canada, and made too popular with those Bob and Doug SCTV characters ( who were created to make fun of Canada's 'Canadian Content' regulations for TV, Radio and magazines etc. )  but still that person was either pretty young or French Canadian or was pulling your leg ( Canucks like doing such things in America and foreign countries like saying how we all live in Igloos and use dog sleds, and pretending to be overly polite. Its a kind of a sport so we can brag about it and feel all superior when we get back home... I shouldn't be giving these secrets away...      Grin  )

I'm trying to retrace my steps from last night when it was all somewhat clear.
Phinnaeus, you were high last night?

I was not. But I was tired and kept pushing. I'm starting to dream about this stuff.

Anybody care to figure this out?:

5699,edwardgel,ed@edwardgel.com,

Hence asking about speaking Russian.

Bez opatrnosti aj šikovnosť je márna.

That'll be one "bez... šikovnosti..." extra on your bill, sir.

You want to hear something funny? I Googled, hence finding what language, then searched for a proverb to counter your post. I was thinking about using BabelFish, but got lucky. Now I learn there's even a better translation site available.  Wink

I suppose it would be something like "to be without care or cleverness is pointless", but, meh... whatever.

I stand corrected and chastened. You made no grammar error, and the sentence makes perfect sense. Curse my ignorance... curse yoooouuu!

Ha, Ha! A spy! You may have gotten the Babe Ruth question right, but there's no selling at Burning Man. I was hoping to go this year, but ended up with my hands full. I'm still doing the 10 day Muskie Fishing Trip up in Wisconsin, though. Goin' to the ye ole Pike Chain. Muskie, walleye, bass, eagles, loons, bears, etc. Can't wait!

No conclusions to draw from there. As long as it doesn't expire, they can renew it. No point on paying for a 10 year domain registration for a business that might be dead in less than 2 years.

All domains expire after one year.

Not really. If you pay for 20 years, it will expire in 20 years.

Example purpose only: I have a great idea that I'm ready to pump a bunch of money in it. I truly see this taking off. But just in case it doesn't, I save myself 8 bucks and only register it for 1 year as oppose to 2 years.

Used to think Phinnaeus is a bit of a nutjob, but he has done some very exemplary detective work on this.
Everything he has discovered makes sense & these details could prove real life tracking possible (like obtaining the IP from bodybuilding.com admins)

This thread would be invaluable in a police investigation, I will make a backup just in case.

That, and 'noagendamarket' on a ton of posts on the forum turned to 'Anonymous' in a different color (because it's not a link) when the mods deleted noagendamarket's account here after he made a post threatening another group of users with harm.

I do that every time when I'm picking up girls.

It goes like this:

Girl: So, psy, what do you do for a living?
Me: I can't tell you. It would be very dangerous for us both if I did.
Girl: ohhhhh! you're a spy! Shocked WOW! Have sex with me Mr. Bond! Kiss

I edited this in Wordpad, and that's is why the emails are linkable. I didn't want it to come out that way.

FIXED

Most of the players (not just what I've listed so far, but many more) have hacking backgrounds with the main exception being BW, who just so happens to have a pretty mouth.

I've highlighted the key points.

weusecoins.com (frank at root66.org) is important because EG always registers more than once, therefore they're close together.

or more likely some total geek who has no fear when hacking due to local laws not being enforced as long as it did not happen
in his own country decided to poke at mybitcoin.com and found a way to defraud it. amazed that it was actually working the
person decided to milk it for everything it was worth.. and then sell the coins. they are probably still slowly selling/withdrawing the money
from the exchanges due to the limits.

or some russian mobster drinking cognac and smoking a cuban cigar decided to put this 31337 nerd hacking team on it.


right...

if we are really speculating maybe an exchange got bribed to assist getting the money converted quicker and remove the limits thus
explaining why they do not give a rat's butt to help the situation.

there. idle gossip. i can do it too.

in a one on one IRC chat with MagTux, i asked him directly if he knew who was behind the MyBitcoin heist around that time and he told me it would be too dangerous for  both of us for him to tell me.  take that for what its worth.

Holy fuck this thread has turned into straight up gossip, this is awesome.   Phinnaeus Gage is the shit.

I have an honest question for you, BitcoinPorn, and simply give me an honest answer. Do you think I'm just spreading gossip?

Not at all, I was saying that to cypherdoc's comment, which came off that way the way he said it.  I am seeing all your info, it is not gossipy, I could have separated my sentences into paragraphs there.

I think this thread is really reaching.. to the point even if you find something worth mentioning no one will read it in this thread
because very little of it makes sense and i bet people gave up on it.

Basically 6 pages that has about 3 post's worth of information that aint that good.

Most of the players (not just what I've listed so far, but many more) have hacking backgrounds with the main exception being BW, who just so happens to have a pretty mouth.

I've highlighted the key points.

I don't understand what the connection between those accounts is supposed to be. Can you spell it out for me, using small, simple words?   Huh

I'm spelling it now and you can see it a little better in the original post where I'm editing it. When I'm done, I'll post it again. Sorry for the mess. It makes sense in my head. Great place to visit but you don't want to live there.

It's not that much of a stretch to see that weusecoins.com and Tom Williams registered the same day, and probably at the same time on the same computer.

That's where you're losing me. I'll say that those two accounts appear to have been registered consecutively, but I don't see anything else that suggests that they were registered by the same person, and/or from the same computer, or even on the same day. Without IP logs and timestamps of registrations, how do you know that those accounts weren't registered from different addresses a few hours apart? Can we also assume that Tom Williams registered his fribit.no account a moment later?

The anonymous guy was the user that went by the nickname of noagendamarket


how do u know this?

I'll explain it real slow: There's...this...thing...called...the...internet...

That, and 'noagendamarket' on a ton of posts on the forum turned to 'Anonymous' in a different color (because it's not a link) when the mods deleted noagendamarket's account here after he made a post threatening another group of users with harm.

That seems like a big stretch to me to discern purpose from a password file. How would he even know that the 666th person had just registered, unless Bruce Wagner and MagicalTux are the same personShocked I could just as easily conclude that Bruce deliberately tried to be user 666, but was a second too late.

Quote
(note password--not starting with $1$)

I'm no expert on the MtGox password file leak, but if I recall correctly what I had read back then, a password not starting with $1$ indicates that it wasn't changed by the user at some point after MtGox changed their hashing algorithm. Or more accurately, the $1$ passwords in that region of the file belong to people who did change their password at some point after the hashing algorithm changed. If I was going to draw any conclusions from that at all, I'd say that two actively-used accounts in which one has a $1$ password and the other doesn't, are less likely to belong to the same person, since a given person would probably revise the passwords of all of their actively-used accounts on a site if they were going to revise any of them.

LMMFAO That was better than Muskie fishing. I got you to bite! I was joking about the 666th member to see if you would take the bait.

Your last point is valid except: Why did BW or EG not change their password, but one of them did?

and this:

253, macrohard ,robert@mckay.com,42d...
311,robert@mckay.com,robert@mckay.com,42d...(same password as above)

Let me ask you this: Do you think my whole theory is hogwash? A yes or no will suffice.

Man... I still think you are going on a wild goose chase...

This address is also in that password file:

31479,tien.dat79,tien.dat79@yahoo.com,$1$YvOM9Q00$FuInXK.RW36tX33fKh8pJ0

That is the SAME emaill address of that wildtigon listed as the mybitoin.com owner on the bitcoinfeedback page.

Incidentally, the owner of the feedback site has the IP address of wildtigon.  I'll bet the IP address is in Vietnam.

I'm not ready to call your whole story hogwash-or-not yet, but many of the assumptions and conclusions you're making seem like big stretches to me, so far.

I see that robert @ mckay.com has more than one account registered there, but I noticed lots of instances of more than one account from the same person last time I perused the MtGox leak file for interesting tidbits. I don't see how that email address is connected to any of this yet, nor do I see a plausible connection to edwardgel or some (*gasp*) Russian person, aside from their accounts being registered at about the same time. With over 60k accounts registered over the relatively short period of time between MtGox's inception and the leaking of their password file, there are bound to be lots of weird-looking coincidences in there.

Ok, I'm going to tell you a secret. Very few people know this, so don't spread it around: NF6X is not the name I was given at birth. I hope that you don't think any less of me because I'm posting here under an alias.  Wink

The following quote is from the end of a comment left by Sergey (remember that name)

Banks and even insurers became vehicles to extract profit at any cost without thoughts beyond next bonus.
Capitalism failed there. Society cannot allowed bad guys to fall.
In your abbreviation SROB the key letter ‘I’ stays for ‘independent’ and it is absent.
Don’t forget every bank including Lehman had/has Risk controllers. They all failed badly. So the body must be independent.
FED doesn’t have infrastructure and expertise in measuring risk. But the truth is that nobody has.

Can we start by safely assuming that BW and EG probably signed up on the same day and possibly on the same computer? (and before you say it, in the same chair with their pants...)

666  sroe  sroemen@gmail.com    (delayed registration because he wanted to be the 666th member)
667  brucewagner  bruce@brucewagner.com
668  Almad  prace@almad.net
669  SergGT serg_gt@rambler.ru
670  iamiam  ed@edwardgel.com
671  welsh  (no email listed)

I believe we could assume that the people who signed up before, during and after BW and EG have no connection to them, with the exception all six are Bitcoin users, unless a direct connection is proven at a later date.

I'll go along with "probably signed up the same day" based on proximity in the password file, but I don't conclude "possibly on the same computer" any more than for any other two accounts that are near each other in that file. Maybe I'm just dense (as a side-effect of entering the afterlife back in 2001), but I'm just not seeing the connection between BW's and EG's pants.

if i recall correctly those "$1$" are the expect results of the MD5 salting that was added to passwords.  thats why you're seeing so many start with that sequence including nguyens.

PS: I won't share your secret, Terry Gilbert.

Drat! You figured me out! There goes my 10-year run of posting both anonymously and posthumously.  Sad

FYI, everyone. I was joking about NF6X being Terry Gilbert. I made that up. Now, let's see if I can tied this all together.

I don't even know who Terry Gilbert is; I just googled the name and picked one who had been deceased for an amusingly long period of time. And thankfully, I have never met Ms. Hilton.  Tongue

surely you aren't suggesting Stefan Thomas is Tom Williams?  Stefan has done some great work for the community and was one of the key speakers at Bitcon.  i've seen him interviewed by BW and he seems like a very cheerful fellow and dedicated Bitcoin enthusiast in his own words.

No I was not claiming that at all. I was stating that the name and the name associated with the email account is different. BTW, do have a picture of him?

[owner-c] handle: 668732
[owner-c] type: PERSON
[owner-c] title:
[owner-c] fname: Stefan
[owner-c] lname: Thomas      (If the owner's name is Stefan Thomas, then why does email link to another name)
[owner-c] org:
[owner-c] address: Sommerhofenstr. 136
[owner-c] city: Sindelfingen
[owner-c] pcode: 71067
[owner-c] country: DE
[owner-c] state: DE
[owner-c] phone: +49-7031-7853000
[owner-c] fax: +49-7031-700935
[owner-c] email: moon@justmoon.de   Here  (same website design as justmoon.ch and justmoon.net)
[owner-c] protection: B
[owner-c] remarks: 32086495
[owner-c] updated: 2011-07-21 03:19:14

i'll do better than a picture.  here's his keynote speech at Bitcon:  http://onlyonetv.com/#5

His pic is there too!

He's pretty active in their Bitcoin forums...over 2600 pages just on bitcoin.

I don't know why you won't even consider this is the guy.

You keep trying to make some connection to Bruce but I highly doubt BW has the technical aptitude to program mybitcoin.  This Vietnamese guy sure does.

The more I try to make sense of what our friend Phin is posting here, the more I lean towards "hogwash". These so called connections seem to me to be stretches worthy of Mr. Slave. I've become comfortable about presuming that 1) mybitcoin was likely to be a scam from the start, and 2) BW is probably somebody I would prefer not to associate with. Much of what has been presented in various threads also makes me somewhat suspicious that BW may have been closely involved with the mybitcoin scam. Still, I really don't see logic behind many of these other supposed connections. They seem to be based more on numerology than solid logic to me. Well, if nothing else, this thread is entertaining to me.

P.S.  Just in case it's not completely clear, pretty much all of the connections I've proposed in this thread so far have been completely satirical B.S. I was telling the truth about feeding my neighbor's horse, though, and even about securing my hat on my head. Wink

Just a pinch of salt:

Has anyone ever confirmed with MagicalTux that the leaked user list has not been tampered with?  For what I know users may have been added or removed by whoever posted and reposted the file. Since information is already public, I hope MagicalTux can compare the files and at least provide a simple yes or no, with a sha1 of the file.

I have an honest question for you, BitcoinPorn, and simply give me an honest answer. Do you think I'm just spreading gossip?
Not at all, I was saying that to cypherdoc's comment, which came off that way the way he said it.  I am seeing all your info, it is not gossipy, I could have separated my sentences into paragraphs there.

MagicalTux posted a while back (3-4 months?) that russian criminals attempted to extort his business for $7000 per month.

He didn't yield to their demands, so there were massive DDoS attacks on Mt. Gox which caused significant financial harm and lowered trading volumes.

Just food for thought.
In fact, he even had to shut down the entire Mt. Gox after the attack became unbearable.

On the broadcast, Hero claims to know those at mybitcoin.com but then claims he doesn't know who Tom Williams is. He also stutters during his assessment. Hero also states that there is no connection what-so-ever between mybitcoin.com and BW. Of course there was--advertising and dollars/BTC changed hands. I'm not exactly convinced that they are not connected. If and when I'm proven wrong, I will concede that point.

I will concede that Stefan Thomas and Frank van Vliet are entirely two different people. The email address is @ the domain hosting site, hence my confusion. But: http://www.linuxsecurity.com/content/view/117467/171/

Are you suggesting that Jan van Vliet is/was directly involved with the weusecoins.com folks? Barring some other link that I haven't perceived yet, I could easily see him as being just another Bitcoin enthusiast who stuck the weusecoins.com reference in his signature to promote his area of interest, just as I have been known to link to things which interest me but which I have had no direct involvement in creating. Like the Apple sticker that I stuck on my work-issued Lenovo laptop; I have no relationship with Apple other than repeatedly giving them lots of money for another hit of their sweet shinies. If I recall correctly, and my brain is not too fogged by the cheap store-brand vodka (don't worry, I'm not Russian), van Vliet appears to be involved with web/network service provision. His apparent connection to other People Of Interest may be due to nothing more than having provided them with services, thus learning about Bitcoins in the process, and then subsequently signing up for some of the same popular, well-publicized services as them. Maybe it's no coincidence that his name shows up in multiple particular places, yet there's another quite plausible explanation for that other than direct involvement with any of our favorite scams. Remember: Correlation does not always imply causation.

50730,haakjes,frank@root66.org,$1$9...    (Is  weusecoins.com)

I don't understand the connection? I started WeUseCoins and I've never heard of frank@root66.org.

21 tweets, with almost as many users, to date contain "weusecoins.com": http://twitter.com/#!/search/realtime/weusecoins.com

According to our AddThis share widget 5262 people tweeted about weusecoins.com. Twitter search shows you only the latest tweets (note they're all from last week). I tweeted about it here and here.


Not sure if this has been pointed out already, but WeUseCoins is hosted at Leaseweb, so yeah. Undecided It is one of the largest hosting providers in Europe, but still I can't really fault anybody for drawing a connection on that point.

My journey into Bitcoin is somewhat documented from IRC chats in December 2010 and early 2011. And also by the fact that at the first Swiss Bitcoin meetup in early February 2011 I didn't really know a lot about Bitcoin yet, which the other attendees Mike Hearn, cdecker and bitdragon can probably confirm. MyBitcoin has been around far longer than I've been into Bitcoin, but of course it's hard to prove a negative that I didn't know about Bitcoin longer.

I'm only following the forums occasionally, so if anybody has any questions, Phinnaeus was kind enough to post my email address already Tongue, but here it is again: moon@justmoon.de

Hello, Stefan Thomas. Bruno here. You're not going to believe this, but members of this forum have been putting something in my coffee when I'm not looking. That said, please accept my apology on this issue. The mistake I made is this: Registrant Email:postmaster@root66.org where Frank van Vliet is the owner.

I'm going to clean up some of what I've written so that your good name doesn't get smeared. Thank you kindly for the soft post to me, although this time a few curse words may have been in order.

Sincerely, Bruno

Explain the significance of a password starting with "$1$" or not.
Here's what the "$1$" prefix means. Don't read anything more than this into the "$1$" prefix.

Originally, MtGox stored hashed passwords in their database. A few years ago, this was considered reasonably secure, but the development and distribution of "rainbow tables" made hashed passwords insecure. (A "rainbow table" is essentially a reverse-lookup which takes you from a hashed password to a candidate unhashed password.)

In response to this, many websites (including MtGox) upgraded their systems to store salted hashed passwords instead of plain hashed passwords. This makes basic rainbow tables unusable for password cracking.

The problem is: how do you upgrade the existing passwords to use the new salting scheme? You don't know the existing passwords; you only know their hash. So you wait until the user logs on with a password that matches the hash. At that point, the user has just entered their actual password so you calculate the password's salted hash, and store that in the database in place of the unsalted hash.

A common technique (which was used at MtGox) represents the salted hashes with a prefix of "$1$", to distinguish it from unsalted hashes and to identify the salting/hashing scheme.

tl; dr:  From the presence of the "$1$" prefix we can deduce that the user logged in one or more times after MtGox changed to salted hashes. From the absence of the "$1$" prefix we can deduce that the user created their account before MtGox changed to salted hashes, and did not log in to that account between that time and when the password file was leaked.

Explain the significance of a password starting with "$1$" or not.
Here's what the "$1$" prefix means. Don't read anything more than this into the "$1$" prefix.

Originally, MtGox stored hashed passwords in their database. A few years ago, this was considered reasonably secure, but the development and distribution of "rainbow tables" made hashed passwords insecure. (A "rainbow table" is essentially a reverse-lookup which takes you from a hashed password to a candidate unhashed password.)
A few years ago, as in like 15?

In response to this, many websites (including MtGox) upgraded their systems to store salted hashed passwords instead of plain hashed passwords. This makes basic rainbow tables unusable for password cracking.
Again, the response to this was well before Gox was in operation. More on this in a bit.


The problem is: how do you upgrade the existing passwords to use the new salting scheme? You don't know the existing passwords; you only know their hash. So you wait until the user logs on with a password that matches the hash. At that point, the user has just entered their actual password so you calculate the password's salted hash, and store that in the database in place of the unsalted hash.

A common technique (which was used at MtGox) represents the salted hashes with a prefix of "$1$", to distinguish it from unsalted hashes and to identify the salting/hashing scheme.

 The answer should have been; you don't, you friggin salt and shadow the passwords to begin with!  That prefix technique would be pretty nifty if it were in conjunction with taking some sort of furthner action on the unsalted ones.

 Case in point; About 14 years ago sadpanda owned a small hosting/dial-up firm. With roughly 2500~ dial ups, 500~ hosted sites and a partner who had the vision to monitize our userbase with our own "webmail". That was exciting, ad revenue and a new offering for our existing customers and potential new ones. There was one issue however and that was a big, fat unsalted password table.

 Not long after we set the customer base up on the new webmail servers did we start to notice 'breaches' in the form of mails in customer inboxes that did not orginate from our mail servers. A good majority of which were trojan laced. We spent many a night integrating virus scanning on the mail servers and manually forcing customers with weak passwords to update them. A daunting task which would have continued to become a growing burden until I called an associate who himself owned a sizable hosting firm.

 Skipping past the fee he wanted to come help my auditing efforts, he made short work of pointing out what I feel now should be obivous. It took him all of a few hours to exclaim, "Are these passwords unsalted and in their default locations?" Well, you by now know the answer to that. Just thinking about the implications of what that meant, not only in the immediate security issue but in what it would entail to get all those users to update their passwords, gave me quite the headache.

 After a few days of manually fixing things I realized the only way to 'fix' it quick was going to be to update all the passwords ourselves. At this point we had added salt into our pwds and moved the storage of them to a shadowed format. And thats where we decided that we had no choice but to 'crack'(L0pht before they went legit) all the passwords ourselves and then push them through the salt. This would not patch up any one who had already been comprimised but certainly did put us in a posistion where we could stop chasing new breaches and focus on securing existing ones. Amen! 

 As an aside, the perps quickly became very unhappy about their lost playground and attempted to Ddos the piss out of our upstream. Unfortunatly for them we owned the exit nodes at our upstream and managed all the filtering ourselves.. ;p

tl;dr  14 years ago we began to salt and shadow on a system not used for financials and I would have assumed anyone setting up a secure system would have done so since then. :/

tl; dr:  From the presence of the "$1$" prefix we can deduce that the user logged in one or more times after MtGox changed to salted hashes. From the absence of the "$1$" prefix we can deduce that the user created their account before MtGox changed to salted hashes, and did not log in to that account between that time and when the password file was leaked.

Sorry for all that off-topic wall of text. Those of us who reconize the salting realized what the $1$ was prefixed on the hashes.

 Not to verify or disprove any of the 'research' Bruno has done here but the $1$ prefix does not remove what he had pointed out. If you look back at the mathcing passwords he showed, one being unsalted and the other being $1$ but with $1$a , as what he was eluding to. I did not look at the pwd file to see if it is similiar past the a but I am confident that Bruno did not assume every friggin password with $1$ in front of it was the same.

  All that aside I personaly feel Tux has come a LONG way from where he started with this new venture and have not noticed anything as concering as the orginal issues. And, I definetly have to appluad his moxie in not giving in to the $7k extortion thing. That sounds like it could be quite stressing and possibly dangerous.

 Now with the mybitcoin thing I can't help but feel, after listening to Hero's input that it sounds almost like some breaches started to become noticed and got out of hand before the orginal devs could do much about it. It seems like they were scared off by something and pretty much abandoned ship, leaving someone to deal with it pretty much on their own. Just my take on it now.

cheers everyone.

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

That is correct, sadpandatech. There was only one instance where I showed that the passwords match.

Before I go any further with this, I want to state that I sent a PM to Stefan Thomas offering my deepest apology for getting weusecoins.com into this mix. As previous stated, I see where my error was and have posted how it occurred. I will continue to play armchair detective, but will be more careful with what I post. I promise that I will continue to make mistakes, but will try to keep them to the bare minimum. I have no agenda in regards to this Bitcoin issue with the exception of finding the truth, not as I see it, but as it is. I hope that my crazy research project here has in someway helped, not hurt, Bitcoin. I want to further state that I gave Stefan my personal phone number and he can do with it as he wishes. It's no secret that I live in Sandwich, Illinois and am easy to find.

Phinnaeus:  do you still have the .csv list of all the hacked accts on mtgox?  every source i've googled today has been taken down.

I put the link is the first post of this thread and it's still working: http://dump.udderweb.com/Censorship/mtgox_leak.txt

there was a list with the unhashed passwords circulating.  do you have that?

I'm about to reply to your PM as well, but just to make one thing very clear, I don't think you need to apologize here. If it was a mistake, I'm glad that you are helping to clear up my name, but in the big picture I'm grateful that you're putting in the time to do this research in the first place. The only thing that would tie this whole mess up properly is if somebody finds Tom Williams.

As I said, because of the fact that we used the same hosting, I can't fault people for seeing a connection.

So the apology is accepted and I very much respect how you handled the whole thing. Please don't let this incident discourage you from investigating me or anybody else.

No, I do not, cyperdoc. Don't you think that one list is more than enough for me to get into trouble with? Like I've stated, I knew this list existed but never took time to hunt it for I had no use for it. I found it by accident the other day which started me on free-stacking my marbles. This is the first I've heard about unhashed passwords, and believe you me, I'm not going to Google it.

can you explain exactly why salting is done?  i think i know after having perused the unhashed password list leaked from mtgox.  i was amazed at how many passwords were either identical or very close such as "qwerty" and "qwerty1".  does the random salt act like a nonce of random characters/digits that make the resulting hash much more complicated than it would be otherwise and thus more secure?  if so, when i type in a simple password how does my computer know the nonce so that the resulting hash matches the mtgox hash?  furthermore, it sounds like the hackers got into mtgox DB and got the hashed passwords directly.  would that be enough to access individual accts?  if so, why did they spend so much time brute forcing the hashes into the simple passwords?

At least as crazy as I am stupid.  Tongue

Regarding the salting: The salt adds an additional pseudorandom element into the password prior to hashing. Without it, two identical plaintext passwords would show up in the password file with identical hashes. Once you crack one of them, you've cracked both of them. With the salt, the two identical plaintext passwords are likely to produce different salted hashes in the password file. Even though they both have the same plaintext password, cracking one doesn't trivially tell you that you've also cracked the other one. So, you need to go to all of the same work to crack each instance of that same password. I think the salting also makes rainbow tables impractical, but I'm no expert on this stuff.

 Aye, pretty much and it makes bruting with dictionaries about useless because of the differing hash result. You'd need to have the exact same salt that was used at the time the pwd was created for each pwd in order for your hashed pwds to match up.(newer cracking efforts can handle this too but it requires a lot more computing cycles for all the extra attempts at each hash)  Further if the tables are shadowed in some form it makes it much, much more difficult to leech the entire password table as you will only find the references to each one and not a complete build of the table. This is all old school crap though. Even though the concept hasn't changed much there are much more secure methods available to store and check user created passwords beyond just salting.

It seems like they were scared off by something and pretty much abandoned ship, leaving someone to deal with it pretty much on their own. Just my take on it now.

From that show it does sound that there is a lot of private information on mybitcoin.com that is being hidden to protect people. I always thought it strange that a site that started when bitcoin was a small (tiny) community could be completely anonymous. With so much freelance detective work evident, I wonder if that small community would be willing to make more information public to brute force this problem with the human based computing it seems is available here and at SA.

ayeeee, my sentiments exactly. Them, combined with admins here and Gox should have more than enough info to come to some sort of conclusion. Which begs the question, 'Are people genuinely concerned for their safety?'.

It makes them much less useful for uninformed attacks especially.

If I happened to know in advance that the salt for the admin account was 12345, I can use a rainbow table prepared with that salt. But that table would only get me into one account. Knowing the salt in advance isn't something that happens frequently, though, so if I want to get rainbow tables, assuming a 2 byte salt I'd need 65,536 of them instead of just 1. And that leaves out the fact that the salt could be prepended _OR_ appended to the password, the hostname could be stuck on there as well, etc... I've seen a lot of extra stuff added into a password before hashing. Getting rainbow tables for those things already generated is harder.

so when i enter my password into mtgox, their DB appends a memorized salt that was created when i first generated my password and then hashes the concatenation using the same hash algorithm (currently SHA-512) to create a hash result that is the same as the hash stored in their system?

Prior to joining this forum, I spent no less than 12 hours reading the posts here. It was discussions like the previous few posts on this thread, and others like it, peppered throughout, that tipped me into joining. One of my early posts starts this sentiment as well. It wasn't long after joining that I saw a change in what was posted. Of course the time frame--forward of me joining (June 16)--must be taken into consideration, for a lot has happened within the past couple months. Even prior to me joining, I read some negative aspects of Bitcoin, but felt those concerns will be addressed in due time. To this day, Bitcoin still has issues, but I know that people more intelligent than I are working overtime to get them resolved so that Bitcoin can move more forward into the mainstream. I'm not a miner, nor a coder, nor a major mover/shaker, but I feel that what little I do bring to this banquet hopefully aids Bitcoin's progression.

Phinnaeus,

10 pages to this thread, many people and email addresses dragged in the mud and still no shadow of any evidence.
10 pages of wishful thinking and what-ifs tossed at random...

So far, I refrained from commenting on that because I wanted to let you the time to recollect your "dicovery of last night". But the more this thread unfolds, the more it feels like you are just thinking aloud.

I am glad someone is investigating, and I don't want to discourage you.
But please considere posting when you are sure that you have really got something.

No argument here. 100% on point. The next quote by BitcoinPorn just about expresses my sentiment completely.

No way will I be posting emails anymore. Thank you, freequant, for bringing that to my attention.

If I'm going to continue pursuing this issue, I feel I should do it with a different approach. I'll start by asking a simple question, then move forward from there. Let's see how this works out.

After reading the quote below gleaned from this post https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=40258.msg490970#msg490970, my Huxley Hat started picking up signals--again.

I find even more strange his story in The Bitcoin Show about how he told to his *friends* one evening that he wanted to withdraw his funds, only to find out the next day that MyBitcoin had gone offline without any explanation

Is it possible for a well seasoned reporter to NOT: Know who Bruce Wagner is; Know about mybitcoin.com; Read this forum; etc.--all prior to June 13, 2011 (20K+ joined after this person became a member), yet was crafting a Bitcoin story?

This topic needs more eyes.

If memory serves me correctly, back then (prior to June 13, 2011) bitcoin.org linked to this forum on its homepage. So I ask again, how is it that a well seasoned reporter didn't read this forum, therefore not knowing about mybitcoin.com or Bruce Wagner? When I first starting reading this forum, I knew about both and I'm not a reporter.

Sure. Well-seasoned reporters spew inaccurate garbage about subjects they know nothing about all the time. Sometimes they even decide what they want their story to say before they begin doing research for it. Many reporters have both journalistic integrity and competence, but there are enough of them who lack one or both that you can't take it for granted that any particular reporter knows what they are talking about.

If memory serves me correctly, back then (prior to June 13, 2011) bitcoin.org linked to this forum on its homepage. So I ask again, how is it that a well seasoned reporter didn't read this forum, therefore not knowing about mybitcoin.com or Bruce Wagner? When I first starting reading this forum, I knew about both and I'm not a reporter.



Incompetence and/or bias?

Is it possible for a well seasoned reporter to NOT: Know who Bruce Wagner is; Know about mybitcoin.com; Read this forum; etc.--all prior to June 13, 2011 (20K+ joined after this person became a member), yet was crafting a Bitcoin story?

Sure. Well-seasoned reporters spew inaccurate garbage about subjects they know nothing about all the time. Sometimes they even decide what they want their story to say before they begin doing research for it. Many reporters have both journalistic integrity and competence, but there are enough of them who lack one or both that you can't take it for granted that any particular reporter knows what they are talking about.

I was wondering who stole my hyphen. Nice catch!

Bias! This person knows their shit otherwise would not be in the position this person is in.

Did you steal my pronouns, too?

Yeah, sorry about that. I must have been playing too much Grand Theft Auto lately.

Plus, took a month preparing the Bitcoin piece, and still didn't know who Bruce Wagner was. Does anybody else, besides me, find this odd? (and was a member of Mt.Gox at the time)

This reporter also was aware of Plato's trip across the US and didn't know about mybitcoin.com. Maybe it's only odd to me. If I was a reporter, which I'm not, my first question would be, "How is he going to pay for stuff?"

It’s been four days since I posted on the Bitcoin forums, announcing my plan to cross the US with only Bitcoins. It looks like I’ve got enough support to get to Florida already - thanks guys! I need more gas nodes between Florida and LA, so if you’re willing to sell me gas for bitcoins (or donate some for free), drop a pin on my map. I also set up a Couchsurfing profile - feel free to contact me on there if you’re interested in hosting me.

How do I buy something with Bitcoins from someone who has never heard of them?Clearly, the average Joe isn’t going to download the client and blockchain while I talk to them. Instead, I’m going to create preloaded mybitcoin.com accounts with varied denominations, and write the credentials on cards. Assuming I can convince the seller that I’m not trying to scam them, they can accept the cards for value.

I'm not gonna fall for the banana in the tailpipe trick. Let's just say that maybe I posted a link on this board a couple or so days ago. I can't believe all the PM's I've recieved to date.

This thread is really jumbled and very confusing.  Was anything actually discovered/confirmed?  Is Tom Williams = Bruce Wagnar?

I believe half the fun of this thread is taking the mass amounts of random information and concocting your own tale of the MyBitcoin Fiasco.

I am currently working on a site taking excerpts from this thread and putting in blanks for certain nouns, verbs, and adjectives so we can all have some MyBitcoin Mad Libs fun.

Honestly though, based on information from this thread, it would lead one to believe there is a decent connection with either Bruce or someone affiliated with Bruce, and a Tom Williams.

I would also say I think there is way more to this story than we will ever know, unknown parties that use guns and don't use the Internet.  But that theory will be in the second Mad Libs book, stay tuned.

On a recent podcast, Hiro White says he is long-term friends with the Mybitcoin guys.  That seems like a big, fat trail to follow.

Perhaps, if I wasn't forking my investigation, and forking up, then maybe I would have this done by now.

I keep going back to http://www.npr.org/blogs/money/2011/08/24/138673630/what-is-bitcoin (listen closely to the podcast) because I feel there's a nugget of gold to be found here.

As far as TW is concerned, last night I was trying to connect http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-help/2005-10/msg00008.html + Dr. Prepper + polarbeargarden + Freddie Mercury.

This morning, I've connected http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-help/2005-10/msg00008.html with Nvidia.

you know, i keep wanting to unsubscribe to this thread cuz a large part of me thinks you're a nut job.

but i just went back and reviewed that NPR podcast and the 25000 BTC on BW's computer has also bugged me ever since i heard about it.  anyone know what MyBitcoins total balance was at the top?

also the fact that there is a Tom Williams one relationship away from Bruce thru Serge G who signed up right after him seems a bit too coincidental as well.

Trust me! I'm not a nut job, but the way I've presented this sure makes it look that way. Now, somebody tell me how JG didn't know about BW and MBC prior to GA telling him about them? The home page of bitcoin.org clearly linked to this forum back then when the investigative reporting on Bitcoin started. Look at the FB page. Out of all the suggestions, Bitcoin was picked for the story, yet didn't have a clue a main guy was only 10 blocks away. Yet, JG did a story on Yap back in December. http://www.npr.org/blogs/money/2011/02/15/131934618/the-island-of-stone-money

I just listened to the PodCast for the umpteen. Would you say that DK and JG had a busy morning? First they spoke with GA, then went to BW's office, signed up to MBC, then wanted to know if using Bitcoin is legal (I would have done this step first), then conducted an interview with RM and felt relieved that it is after paying $40 to BW, then had lunch at MG. But, while eating the chicken platter, MBC gets robbed. Now that's the story NPR should cover.

I forgot to mention that somebody else posted about BW wanted to move Bitcoin away from MBC the day before.

Thank you, NF6X. BTW, I've almost completed the Freddy Mercury connection. Just a tad more poking.
