Thanks D. :thumbsup:

Yeah VERY interesting read and WARNING to all. I'm going to change my strategies soon too.

Freshmarket.co.in was hacked :( And so last night I got hacked :( Over 50 LTC gone. For now. And freshmarket.co.in were not the only ones...

TITTIECoin got victim too!

FROM: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=449796.0
Are you ready for the most amazing story? We were victims of a hack two days ago as well, the person who sold us our gaming sites stole all of the coins held in our games and made off with the 20 million in total from our tittiecoind server and wallet that was held for growing our community. He then blamed his partner who is now supposedly he's X-partner.

We immediately got our team together and started investigating, our investigations led us to a sell order on Fresh Markets for 19 million, this was obviously our coins as the sell order was placed round about the same time as the hack. We then contacted Fresh Markets who were very quick to act and froze the account and suspended trading. Fresh markets worked with us and contacted the trader who explained that he bought the TittieCoin form someone in CEX.io chat. We contacted CEX.io who also "amazingly" jumped right into the deep end to help us and requested a support ticket for their records. We Got CEX.io and Fresh Market in a group chat over Skype along with the the fresh market account holder who submitted the 19 million trade offer, our Founder as well as our two Co-Founders and main Contributors for TittieCoin.

After a long back and forth CEX.io requested a transaction ID from the suspect who was not willing to cooperate any further and stopped responding to our investigation questioning! Fresh Market gave the suspect 24 hrs to respond however the suspect seemed to have been scared off by the amazing team effort put in by CEX.io, Fresh Market and the TittieCoin team! We have since been refunded our 20 million and would like to extend mountains of gratitude to CEX.io and Fresh Markets for helping TittieCoin and it's community get back on track! I do not believe Fresh markets would jeopardize there business for such short term gain. We hope you get back on track Fresh Market and the TittieCoin team are here for you if you need anything!

Much LOVE!

(If you follow this quote, you are also in the main thread for the freshmarket.co.in hack... Put up by Freshmarket themselves!)

NOOOOO Karma :(

I hate my life :)

UPDATE: Do not request refunds through PM. Send email to  support@freshmarket.co.in with username, coin amounts and withdrawal address. don't PM him...

UPDATE 2: 45 minutes ago I received an email from support, requesting my LTC (and LEAF?) address. I'm starting to pray now. Being atheist, I'm just being extra nice to my pc  >:D Still I Believe and have good hopes to get all my funds back. I deserved it and freshmarket.co.in guys seem to be legit. Over-classed, but legit. I am afraid they are personally bankrupted by this (filling in the stolen funds). This deserves an applause... Let's see what their coders come up with - they had interesting markets and prices. I'll update later :)

Got a PM on bitcointalk.org :(

Hello.
We will watch how much amount you have and will withdraw all we can - 100% of nut, 84% LTC and 64% of LEAF coins. I'm sorry about this, but we can't refund more - as you see, we lost nearly 40% of ltc, and i(as all dev team too) had to sell all my crypto to ltc to refund atleast this.
Also, is there any possible way to trace to which exchange(?) or where did these coins got: http://block-explorer.com/address/LNuffAyp83aGNeA3otUFdYBEpLUxWnHRja
It's the only adress to which was massive withdraws, and we could find it.
Also, there were LUTozZ3fscHX22DD8JFkTqpZwpxS3Lo1bt litecoin adress, on which was some withdraws, but we blocked it as soon as saw 2 account withdrewing money to it.
I think there were more leaks, but i can't see them in withdrawal history - one-time used adress is ok for our security system.
