The exchange alleges in a newly released blog post that it was the target of a hack in July 2014, an incident that it said cost it approximately 13,000 BTC ($7.5m at the time) and approximately 300,000 LTC (then $2.08m).

Another strike in general confidence against digital currency. It should be a loss of confidence against the exchange(s) but the general public, heck even those very involved with digital currency will have a hard time separating the two. A sad day...

I ve also read a few things about Cryptsy , last information for me was : " Lucky Number 7 coin " implemented a malicious software snippet into the Coin Software and infected the Exchange.

- So other Exchanges will eventually only list coins which are "Open Source" so they can check/proof that there is no malicious software in the Client .
