Cyberattack Hits Popular Bitcoin Forum

October 09, 2013  Security Suite

Hackers seized the Bitcoin forum Bitcointalk.org, greeting visitors to the site with an audio recording of the 1812 Overture as images of orchestral conductors and animations of exploding bombs captured the screen. A video message eventually scrolled down stating: "Hello friend, Bitcoin has been seized by the FBI for being illegal. Thanks, bye." This attack follows the recent shutdown of the Bitcoin-based marketplace Silk Road and the arrest of its proprietor Ross W. Ulbricht by the F.B.I. as an alleged online drug operation. The administrator of Bitcointalk.org plans to keep the site down until a full investigation is conducted.
