Where is the official announcement?

I can't find anything official, but here's some discussion on bitcointalk:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=522458.msg17252309#msg17252309

Someone says they got the following response from support (bold is mine for emphasis)

"The problem of server logic, leading to more than 1000 bits in platform hot wallet share, more than 1000 future currency and a few other digital assets, such as BTC/LTC is missing, but we will bridge the funding gap. Users will not have a loss. Other COINS will be this two days to return to work."
My opinions are my own

Turn up the H.E.A.T.

Did I offend? 

Good!

Here you have the most fantastic exchange ever created and the people who SHOULD be using it the most aren't.

How can the Bitshares community convince others to use their exchange if they don't use it themselves???  Shame.

This should be another example to people that centralized exchanges are vulnerable to these attacks. Bitshares' decentralized exchange is still as needed as it ever was.

Those aren't real BTS.  Real BTS wouldn't have been kept on a centralized exchange!

This looks closer to 20m BTS lost!

Quick.. someone create a prediction market on what the hacker is going to do with it!

as btc38 officially said, due to "server logic error", they lost more than 10M BTS, more than 10M NXT and some BTC/LTC from the hot wallet, which totally worth about 1.5M CNY.

it seems below is the hacker's BTS account:
