    The most popular Bitcoin forum, BitcoinTalk, was hacked and will stay offline until someone will claim a prize of 50 BTC (about $6500).
    The prize is offered to the first person who finds out how it was done.

    Interesting consequence, isn't it?

    BTW The database dump is offered on pastebin by the hacker for a mere 25 BTC, e.q. if you claim the prize you can buy it twice.

    Maybe the US government will buy the database

    They can then say the hacker is a paid informant.

    Id say a lot of people are shitting their pants tonight

    I wouldn't go anywhere near anything related to this issue. It's a war between these guys and the feds and we have no idea who's who, maybe this is a honeypot or something.

    They can screw your life and implicate you in a legal clusterfuck for just about any reason.

    I love being on the same wavelength as some people.

    This is a honey pot of epic proportions. . . And it's not about to stop here.

    Lol this is what the BitcoinTalk website looked like after the hack. To be honest, it made me laugh. I do have an account there, time to change all my passwords.
