[7/31/12 10:49:33 AM] btc-e.com: Started trading!

Since the attack started about 8pm Eastern last night, I have been awake until about now (11am EST) working with BTC-e on the investigation.

From the moment they woke up and I broke the news to them, until now they have handled it exeptionally well.

Within only a few hours they posted an update https://btc-e.com/news/81

It sounds like they also adopted good security practices and because of it only lost 4500 BTC even though the hacker tried stealing upwards of 30000 BTC.
Cold storage is the way to go.

Bitinstant will resume to work with BTC-E, however even though trading is resumed we will not be enabling deposits/withdrawals in and out of BTC-e to protect customers funds for the next few hours. Stay tuned.

EDIT: Bitinstant <--> BTC-E Enabled now

Thanks

It's nice to see how it should be done.  Kudos to BTC-e!

Hehe, I like your grammar. Either you are extremely overtired, or you have been working with some Russians via a machine translator, or both. Grin

Good decision. It's important to understand how the password leaked to prevent it from happening again.

I'm very glad this didn't end up terribly. Hope the exchange will recover and move on. Kudos to all involved with prevention and cleanup.

Which only proves that bitcoins are valuable and useful. Exchanges and users will eventually get their act together and start treating Bitcoin with respect.

It sounds like they also adopted good security practices

Explaining the external use of their LR key with "brute forced" has me worried, I don't see how that's computationally possible: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=96831.msg1068030#msg1068030

What additional security practices are put in place in case the hackers are able to extract new replacement keys easily?

I'm shocked at how well this has been handled (so far).

So well, in fact, that we may start seeing conspiracies crop up about how btc-e hacked their own site to show how well they handled it.  Roll Eyes

HA! Even if that was the case, that would just prove they were savvy marketers to boot. BTCe has demonstrated to people how things are supposed to get done.
