Bitcoinica: The never end history
« on: July 13, 2012, 12:53:23 PM »
The never end history

Today genjix posted another it happened again, and again, and again history..."huge breach of Bitcoinica".
We regret to inform you that there has been another huge breach of Bitcoinica. While all passwords were changed after the theft which occurred May 11th, the password for LastPass was not compromised and thus left unchanged. The breach today occured because the password for LastPass was in fact a duplicate password which had been compromised during the hack.

Edit: The API key was changed, but someone had a LastPass account with the same password as that, and was actively updating it with new passwords.

40k USD and 40k BTC were stolen (~350k USD).

I can't believe there are people still even using Bitcoinica.
I mean they "Claim" they got hacked  on several occasions.
Also amazed that no one has had them taken down with legal actions. Bitcoinica joins forces with Bitcoin Consultancy
