Cyberthreat Weekly Roundup: Bitcoin Compromised, Celebrity Death Spawns New Malware, and FBI Getting Wary over Cyber Threats

First in this week’s lineup of cybersecurity news, Bitcoin exchange Bitcoinica was breached. It compromised for a total of ฿18,547 BT which is equivalent to over $87,000 USD.
...


Just a summary of the Bitcoinica hack in siliconangle.com
Kristina Farrah writes surprisingly sloppily for a site which often covers bitcoin topics:
" Bitcoin assured, however, that the amount isn’t all of their currency and that they will not inhibit withdrawals"
&
"We can recall Bitcoin suffering a number of serious compromises..."

Like so many journalists new to covering Bitcoin issues - she doesn't appear to make the distinction between the Bitcoin ecosystem itself,Bitcoinica and other Bitcoin service providers.
(Usually the siliconangle journalist covering Bitcoin is Kit Dotson)
