http://247cryptonews.com/bter-got-hacked-7000-bitcoins-stolen-7-different-accounts/

We have a suspect! With help from Franko Collective people who started as well to research on this horrible situation of BTER. His name is Woźniak Sebastian he is the guy that owns the server in Switzerland with the IP 46.28.204.193. Why do we believe it’s a suspect? Well, he seems to be a hacking & Bitcoin enthusiast having an article on Hacking9 & a profile on Bitcoin Foundation. Also, he scammed people in the past on Bitcointalk and has a scarce information on his Facebook account. We have a strong belief that in a way or other Wozniak Sebastian is implied in this hack. Until future investigation he will remain “suspect” and not guilty also we have a strong belief that isn’t the guy that has Bitcurex, it would be awful, but somebody using this name for his online assets. We will keep you updated on our tracing to the guy who robbed BTER, again this is “Wozniak Sebastian” is just a link, a hint, a suspect.

The author of the article doesn't understand that the IP address listed on the transaction page is just the node that relayed the transaction to Blockchain.info.

I wonder how many other bitcoin news sites are going to pick up the article even though it is totally wrong.

Yikes, so much misinformation in this world... Silly peeps trying to think they know stuff...

Coinbase for selling BTCs
Fold for spending BTCs
PM me with any questions on these sites/apps!  http://www.montybitcoin.com


or Vircurex for trading alt cryptocurrencies like DOGEs
CoinNinja for exploring the blockchain.

Plus, if the hacker was using TOR, it would create a false IP address.

WOW so irresponsible to just name and shame someone without even a scant of evidence besides an IP
that anyone who has a clue should know, means nothing.

The New World Order thanks you for your support of Bitcoin and encourages your continuing support so that they may track your expenditures easier.

The article has been rewritten so that it isn't so blatantly wrong. They are still accusing the same person even though they have no evidence. The accusation is now an "update" even though it was part of the original story.

This is journalism at its worst.

If Mr Wozniak was wrongfully accused, he should sue Cryptonews, because his name will most likely be all over the internet with a tag "suspect" next to it. Wannabe journalists should really think before releasing their articles. Certain Leah has learned this the hard way Wink

Yes, they've modified the story since it was first posted. I hadn't realized how wrong the article was when I posted the link to it.

These idiots probably just looked on the blockchain and googled the first IP address they saw.

What do you expect from these shitty sites? They've got to get their traffic from somewhere. Hope this guy sues them then maybe they will consider actually fact checking their articles on future.
