well 2 grand invested but the price went up, so it was worth 42. Logged in to sell and according to the logs an IP from japan had logged in a few hours earlier and cleaned me out. Exchange told me there was nothing they could do and it was my fault for not having 2 factor, which was true but pretty piss poor service, so i did laugh a little when they got hit with a hack (BTC-E)

I've been affected by the successful attacks on Home Depot, LinkedIn, Experian Equifax, and Anthem.

FIFY

I have also been affected by these as well. Both personal and at work. I work for Experian Health, so when the Equifax and Anthem breaches happened we had to step up and do damage control ourselves simply because we are associated with them. The company is also putting some pretty intensive security measures in place to ensure that no one will have access to production and the outside world at the same time. It's been a grueling process so far, but hopefully our productivity will go back to what it was previously.

The gallows humor that we have whenever we run into a security roadblock goes like: "If the objective of the hackers was to cause a denial of service, then they have succeeded... With IT security aiding them every step of the way."
