遭攻击并被抢,又一家比特币网站被迫关闭

比特币银行服务Flexcoin在周日的一次攻击中丢失了896枚比特币,价值36.5万英镑(约合61万美元)。该公司承认,没有足够资金来应对这一损失,因此将被迫关闭。

Flexcoin已关闭网站,并于周二早间发布声明,解释了损失情况。声明称:“2014年3月2日,Flexcoin遭遇攻击,而热钱包(hot wallet)中的所有比特币被盗一空。由于Flexcoin没有资源和资产去应对这一损失,我们将立即关门。”

不过,该公司并非全部资产被盗。遵循比特币金融服务的最佳行为规范,Flexcoin对一些比特币进行了“冷存储”,即保存在未连接互联网的设备中。这些比特币仍是安全的。不过,只有要求将比特币进行冷存储的用户能从中受益,而此前冷存储需要0.5%的手续费。

声明称:“Flexcoin将与冷存储比特币的用户联系,并要求他们验证身份。一旦身份确认,冷存储的比特币将以免手续费的方式转移。冷存储的比特币被离线保管,没有受到攻击的影响。Flexcoin将与司法部门合作,追踪攻击来源。”

Flexcoin试图在比特币体系内引入传统银行系统。该服务允许两名Flexcoin用户之间免费转移比特币,也支持用户在更广泛的比特币社区内使用比特币。

仅仅6天前,Flexcoin曾发表声明称,比特币交易所Mt.Gox的关闭未对其产生影响,该公司并未丢失任何比特币。Flexcoin的关闭再次表明,比特币社区存在明显的信息安全问题。(维金)

 

——【Flexcoin 关闭声明】——

Flexcoin is shutting down.

On March 2nd 2014 Flexcoin was attacked and robbed of all coins in the hot wallet. The attacker made off with 896 BTC, dividing them into these two addresses:

1NDkevapt4SWYFEmquCDBSf7DLMTNVggdu

1QFcC5JitGwpFKqRDd9QNH3eGN56dCNgy6

As Flexcoin does not have the resources, assets, or otherwise to come back from this loss, we are closing our doors immediately.

Users who put their coins into cold storage will be contacted by Flexcoin and asked to verify their identity. Once identified, cold storage coins will be transferred out free of charge. Cold storage coins were held offline and not within reach of the attacker. All other users will be directed to Flexcoin’s “Terms of service” located at “Flexcoin.com/118.html” a document which was agreed on, upon signing up with Flexcoin.

 

Flexcoin will attempt to work with law enforcement to trace the source of the hack.

Updates will be posted on twitter as soon as they become available.
