someone, either an attacker or insider at MintPal has come up with a way to do transactions on behalf of customers

Well, all they need is access to the database and the logs. They access the Database, find the password, log in, and complete the trade. They then log out, change the logs, and they are done.


This is so dumb that didn't bother reading the rest; you have obviously never been near the backend of any kind of web application or you'd know that:

A) Passwords are never stored in plain text, especially in a high security situation such as a bitcoin exchange.

B) If "all they had" was direct access to the database...why would they need your password?  And why would they do a single trade on your account with amounted to losing you what like $20??

If the hackers had direct access to the database they could (or at least attempt to) clear out your entire balance and everyone else on the system.
They basically could do anything they want with your account without having to login or need your password.

I really hope such a thing as "KaChingCoin" does not actually exist if you are the "dev" for it.

+1 For basically all of that

Passwords in even only semi-secure sites are not stored in plain text.......

So no someone didnt grab your username, password and user agent from the DB, make a quick transaction for stuff all money and then cover their tracks.

If someone was that damned good they would have emptied the exchanges hot wallets not brought you shares that lost money.

Maybe they will, we shall see

Keep using MintPal, that is fine. I had an issue, and I know it is not my fault. I am out of MintPal because I don't want to get hurt on the larger scale.

Never have used them but i have dealt with people who make mistakes and then wanted someone else to pay for it.

Thats what im seeing right here.

Seriously, if this is so "dumb", why reply posting? Plus, I am a developer, and I have been near backends. Anybody with an IQ of over 100 and access to the database could do this. If you would of read the rest, maybe you could answer B

If you ever develop anything coin related please let me know so I can stay the fuck away from it.

Hate to say it but I get the feeling your security could have been better.  Not placing any blame just giving an opinion.
