Bitcoin Talk forum hacked hours after making cameo in Silk Road takedown
Just hours after it played a supporting role in the takedown of the Silk Road drug empire, the Bitcointalk.org website suffered a hack that exposed users’ personal messages, e-mails, and password data.
“To be safe, it is recommended that all Bitcoin Forum users consider any password used on the Bitcoin Forum in 2013 to be insecure,” an e-mail sent to registered users stated. “If you used this password on a different site, change it. When the Bitcoin Forum returns, change your password.”
