BitCoin hacked, More than 18,000 Bitcoins Stolen


Zhou maintains that apart from the Bitcoins, the database was also stolen but the passwords was salted and encrypted using bcrypt. Zhou mentions that the stolen bitcoins are likely to be reimbursed by Bitcoinica in USD. This isn’t the first time Bitcoinica’s been broken into few months ago Bitcoinica’s bitcoin wallet which stored the funds were stolen due to a breach in Bitcoinica’s then webhost Linode.
