Bitcoin Stolen / Hacked from Melbourne users

So this is a bit full-on for a week night.

Sam (our hero behind the Bitcoin Roadshow) had a considerable amount of Bitcoin hacked via social engineering and domain hijacking.  The hack sounded quite elaborate and very targeted.  We know this because Sam has spoke publicly about his experience at last nights Bitcoin meet-up.

His story is terrifying and a reminder that most of us are probably overdue for a change of passwords and (possibly) some better security awareness.  It turns out that Sam was already very security conscious – but the hackers circumvented this.

Sam has agreed to sit and have a proper chat to us about what happened.  For backers, we’ll put the uncut versions up for you.
