Lionhat Security takes claim for Mt. Gox hack and user dump, taunts owners and promises next black friday.
I just received an email from a reliable source (who clued me into the Mt. Gox hack well before the bitcoin forums knew) which points to a security group taking response for the hack and database dump today.
Subject: mt.gox hack 2day
i know the guys who hacked into mt.gox and dumped the data today. they released about 60k usernames/passes (hashed), but say they are hanging on to the good stuff for now, preparing for another major crash (without correction this time they say)
these guys aren’t lulsec or anon, think bigger picture, esp. in an unreg market like bitcoins ðŸ˜‰
He sent me a link to a manafesto from Lionhat Security, who taunts the lead developer storing US customer info overseas and who’s previous experience includes iPhone applications.
Another release from lionhat security
bitcoin sure has come a long way lately? people moving their life savings around, putting it all in mtgox. well you saw what happened the other day what we were able to acquire from them. maybe you shouldn’t have trusted an 18 year old whose credentials include an iphone soundboard app with your offsite servers. also, shouldn’t he have been paying attention to transactions instead of attending anime conventions? ðŸ™‚
well, good luck with the mining and all, we’re halfway there with the next black fridayQQ
so throw a few coins our way and we’ll give you a little preview of what we have in store next in addition to some more goodies we got from the last hack ðŸ˜€

They included a bitcoin block link so maybe they’re looking to cash in on the same penny BTC action from today, who knows.
