Everyone, please read below and take necessary precautions.

 

 

"Unfortunately, it was recently discovered that the Bitcoin Forum's server
was compromised. It is currently believed that the attacker(s) *could* have
accessed the database, but at this time it is unknown whether they actually did
so. If they accessed the database, they would have had access to all
personal messages, emails, and password hashes. To be safe, it is
recommended that all Bitcoin Forum users consider any password used
on the Bitcoin Forum in 2013 to be insecure: if you used this
password on a different site, change it. When the Bitcoin Forum
returns, change your password.

Passwords on the Bitcoin Forum are hashed with 7500 rounds of
sha256crypt. This is very strong. It may take years for
reasonably-strong passwords to be cracked. Even so, it is best to
assume that the attacker will be able to crack your passwords.

The Bitcoin Forum will return within the next several days after a
full investigation has been conducted and we are sure that this
problem cannot recur.

Check http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/ and #bitcoin on Freenode for
more info as it develops.

We apologize for the inconvenience."

I find it interesting that this happens the same day or day after sr gets shut down finally.

I do remember speculating that the FBI supoena'd bitcointalk to gain access to DPR's accounts. If they have the legal authority to supoena a foreign VPN, then they likely have the power to supoena bitcointalk (and if they refused to talk about it, then that's a problem...)

I haven't even been back there since the site was dark for a while.  I was in a bit of a routine for a while, checking various info about alts and digging for stuff, but the blackout snapped me of that habit.  I am a bit relieved, to be honest, as that place can sometimes shred through my skin and cause burning sensations in my eye sockets.

I find all of it strange, especially Atlantis suddenly shutting up shop then a few weeks later SR goes down.

 

Wonder how long Sheep will last?
