Breach at Bitcoinica Exchange Nets $87,000 In Online Currency

Brian Donohue

Reports of the Bitcoinica hack came on the same day that Wired published an unclassified FBI report detailing the bureau's concerns regarding cybercriminal use of the semi-anonymous virtual currency. As Threatpost has reported, Bitcoins, which can be exchanged anonymously, are being targeted with more frequency as well. Earlier this year, hackers compromised the cloud service provider, Linode, and emptied the bitcoin accounts of eight customers, totalling around $14,000.
