The ransomware tx, i think: https://blockstream.info/tx/9436dbf0435b15378f309c35754a110db880fa9bb66a062160a25533bb4a212a
For what it's worth: heard on the Risky Business podcast (IT security stuff), their working theory is that (a) perp is a teenager, heard from multiple sources, (b) the coins were actually seized they think most likely, by some govt agents "popping a shell" (or otherwise hacking) and simply sending the funds out of the perp's wallet. Interesting! No idea if true.
@waxwing if that is the case, i how they figured out what computer to hack, i mean, do spy nodes give enough confidence of the real origin of a transaction to warrant action like that
might be they had some evidence outside of bitcoin, of course, for all we know they staged the entire attack from that server 🙂
@orionwl well from the accounts of those podcasters, the implication seemed to be that they knew who he was (see: teenager), so i just assumed the hacking was based on that.
@stevenroose @orionwl yeah that's the issue. They require FB acct. For now I'm sticking with Valve. It looks like Valve are threatening to come out with a wireless option at some point, but i think it won't touch the pain points that push people to FB - the need for PC plus lighthouses, nor cost. I think.
