    Default Silk Road 2.0 hacked, bitcoins worth $2.7 stolen: Report

    WASHINGTON: Silk Road 2.0 has been reportedly hacked by attackers who made off with nearly $2.7 million in bitcoin, the site's complete holdings.


    Administrator of the second incarnation of the online anonymous black marketplace, known as Defcon, has claimed that hackers exploited the same 'transaction malleability' that caused temporary transfer shutdowns at bitcoin exchanges BitStamp and Mt Gox this week.

    the value of bitcoins has dumped about 200$/coin over the past 2 months, and it hasnt really seemed to gain stable ground yet. at the moment they go for roughly 640$ a piece.

    The 'transaction malleability' bug is the technical reason why Mt. Gox decided to halt withdrawals. But don't worry; Mt. Gox is set to restart bitcoin withdrawals soon. BTW, bitcoin price is up 5% to $641.25.
