+ - Bit-heist: Over $1mn in bitcoins stolen from Australian online bank->

Submitted by LordWabbit2
LordWabbit2 (2440804) writes "An Australian bitcoin bank holding over US$1 million of the crypto-currency has been hacked, leaving an unknown number of users with nothing – one of the largest thefts in the currency’s four-year history.

The incident took place on October 26, when the bank was hacked, with 4,100 bitcoins valued at $1.3 million stolen, the service’s operator only known as ‘Tradefortress’ said. He refused to give his name to the press, also stressing he was not much older than 18.

  It took the bank’s owner two weeks to notify the affected customers."
