AGAIN what?

a) bitcoinica hacked again?  - sure.. enough articles below for you to have worked that out though I guess Wink
b) Another media story on the Bitcoinica hack?   - yeah, it is getting a lot of coverage.
c) Another report of a media story regarding the latest Bitcoinica hack in the Press subforum?  -  yeah - each one deserves its own thread.
