Sensationalist nonsense. He never stole them, he detected the issue and swept them before any bad actors could so.

Definitely brings back the old idea of having a mouse move entropy collector (like krypto kit) on your web page to go along with the browsers secure random number.   A hacker would have to guess both numbers.

would have done the same ... although I would have negotiated a 5-10% "protection fee" :) (not necessarily with the owners but blockchain.info)

He got rewarded by blockchain.info. Apparently got a good gig too.
