    Unrelated Hacking (5.00 / 2) (#1)

    Anonymous Tweeted this out the night before WS went down:
    Wonder if tomorrow is going to be bad for Wall Street.... we can only hope.

    But fear not WS says...

    "The issue we are experiencing is an internal technical issue and is not the result of a cyber breach," it said in another statement. "We chose to suspend trading on NYSE to avoid problems arising from our technical issue. NYSE-listed securities continue to trade unaffected on other market centers."  LINK

    Guess they are just clairvoyant.

    Hacking Team's Bitcoin wallet exploit (none / 0) (#2)
    by Mr Natural on Tue Jul 14, 2015 at 10:58:11 AM EST
    Hacking Team's Alberto Ornaghi, a software architect, e-mailed his colleagues in Italian with a few more details:

    Hi all,

    from the 9.2 backend will support the new module MONEY for all platforms. We keep track of transactions in crypto-currencies targets (see history of silk-road) and in the demo we can also make a bitcoin transaction to buy drugs and see in the form of correlation to those who got that money (DEA: anyone interested? : P)

    the information we can get are: addressbook (list of all contacts and local accounts of the target), files (the wallet itself, containing the money and spend it for private keys), transactions (transaction history in/out of the target , useful for making correlations).
