Cyber-thieves have stolen more than a million dollars in digital money from an online Bitcoin storage service. Hackers breached the host by manipulating flaws in the system which authenticates users. They made off leaving no trace having emptied the virtual vault almost completely. The service is unable to compensate most of those affected. The operation is the latest incident showing how imperfect the system remains.

Why would anyone store their bitcoin with anyone but themselves?

 

Maybe we need to open the LTFU Bitcoin Storage Service.  Then we get "robbed" by "untraceable hackers" and divvy up the loot!

The ugly responses were from users who accused Tradefortress of making up the hacking story

 

My first thought too.

 

Anyone who stores their bitcoin in an online "bank" is asking to get ripped off.  What an easy target.

How is this a problem with bitcoin? This is the fault of the wallet service alone.
