Recent attack on crypto exchange
« on: April 24, 2014, 12:04:34 AM »

Some exchanges have experienced being hacked lately. This is due to a rogue crypto currency known as DafuqCoin. It has allegedly embedded rootkit that can have access to servers and steal assets. Bitshare X must be very vigilant about bitassets. Before a crypto currency has to be included in an exchange, it must really be scrutinized otherwise, it will be out of business in a matter of minutes.

Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

Dafaqcoin = total malware

The code installs a rootkit which allows the attacker to essentially run the whole server. As you can imagine, this is a catastrophic situation in certain cases. A major victim of this assault was Cryptokk.com, who has been forced out of business by this attacker.

What i have read is , it has an embedded Azazel rootkit. So it is malicious and dangerous.
