Was the Mt. Gox loss of over $400 Million an inside job? Some hackers are out to prove there was no loss at all, and that Mt. Gox intentionally stole the money!

Following MtGox Bitcoin exchange losing millions to a hack and filing for bankruptcy, anonymous attackers took over the personal blog and reddit account of MtGox CEO Mark Karpeles on Sunday. After seizing those accounts , the hackers posted a message to pastebit detailing their findings and the reasoning behind the attack.

CEO tells Ars: “I cannot comment much for the present time, ” compares to Chapter 11 in US.
“It’s time that MTGOX got the bitcoin communities [sic] wrath alternatively of Bitcoin Community getting Goxed, ” the message reads. “This release would have been sooner, but in spirit of responsible disclosure and making sure most of ducks were in a row, it took a couple of days longer than would have liked to verify the data… One of them down load you will find relevant database dumps, csv exports, specialized tools, and some highlighted summaries compiled from data. Keeping in line with f—- Gox alone, no user database dumps have been included. ”

Forbes reports the 716 megabyte file placed on Karpeles’ site included items like his home address, CV, and an Excel spreadsheet that appears to document more than a million trades. But the most interesting piece of information shared is a summary of 18 different currency balances-with 951, 116 bitcoins listed. In light of the 850, 000 bitcoins supposedly lost in the recent attack, the hackers concluded this figure demonstrates fraud. The footnote reads, “That fat f–k has been lying!! ”

Despite the hack making noise around the Internet today, this leak isn’t yet guaranteed evidence of foul play. As Forbes notes, the balances could be a case of awful bookkeeping (it’s not too far-fetched that MtGox was unaware of the hack for awhile), and Karpeles has yet to come back to that site’s request for comment.
