Bitcoin Standardization, Security and Accountability: the DCC, C4, and OBPP

Bitcoin Magazine, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

There has been a longstanding debate within the Bitcoin ecosystem on the concept of regulation and standardization of the industry. There are generally two camps of Bitcoin enthusiasts. One side contends that Bitcoin was meant not to be regulated. The other side wants to work alongside regulators to bring about mass adoption of the digital currency. Currently, it is very easy for a wallet manufacturer to make claims about privacy that cannot be easily checked by the average user. Recent scams and fraudulent players in a rapidly growing industry have prompted both sides to reach a consensus; the industry needs a watchdog to protect consumers. Enter the Watchmen Last March Bitcoin Magazine covered C4’s announcement of a new Crypto Security […]

Internet Activists Ridicule PM Cameron’s Plan to Ban Strong Encryption in the UK

Bitcoin Magazine, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

British Prime Minister David Cameron said that his government intends to ban strong encryption, UK’s leading political news website politics.co.uk reports. In reply to Tory Member of Parliament Henry Bellingham, who asked the prime minister whether the attacks in Tunisia meant it was time companies such as Google, Facebook and Twitter understand that their current privacy policies are completely unsustainable, Cameron said that the security services must always be able to spy on online communications. “Britain is not a state that is trying to search through everybody’s emails and invade their privacy,” said Cameron. “We just want to ensure that terrorists do not have a safe space in which to communicate. That is the challenge, and it is a challenge […]

The Greek government just got a huge referendum boost

Business Insider, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

The head of radical leftist Syriza party Alexis Tsipras speaks to supporters after winning the elections in Athens January 25, 2015. Tsipras promised on Sunday that five years of austerity, "humiliation and suffering" imposed by international creditors were over after his Syriza party swept to victory in a snap election on Sunday.

Greece's ruling Syriza party just got a huge boost for their campaign to get Greeks to reject current bailout proposals in Sunday's referendum.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF), one of Greece's three main creditors, admitted Thursday that Greece's debts need restructuring.

That's pretty much the key demand Greece has been making all along. Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis told Bloomberg TV earlier Thursday that he'd rather "cut his arm off" than sign a new bailout deal that didn't include rehashing the deals to make payment dates more realistic.

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and his ruling Syriza party's major issue with bailout proposals so far has been that they effectively turn Greece into a zombie country, stumbling along the poverty line and existing solely to pay off its heavy debts.

The IMF admits in its latest debt sustainability report on Greece that things have deteriorated so badly over the last year that debts are currently "unsustainable" and the country can't cope with any debt repayments for at least 3 years, even if things start moving back in the right direction. Greece's next payment — €3.5 billion (£2.5 billion, $3.89 billion) to the European Central Bank — is due July 20.

It also admits Greece will probably need a debt "haircut" — writing off some of the money it owes.

Some of the IMF's proposals are even more radical — one idea is to give Greece a 20-year "grace period" during which it wouldn't have to pay debts.

Greece's economy has been crippled by huge debt demands, shrinking 25% over the last five years, and the IMF says the country will need €50 billion (£35.5 billion, $55.5 billion) to survive over just the next 3 years.

All of this is a huge boost for Tsipras, who told Greeks in a TV address on Wednesday that the country's creditors need to give it "breathing space."

Hackers targeted employees of a Bitcoin exchange via Skype before stealing $5 million

Business Insider, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

Hacker silhouette

Six employees of Bitstamp were targeted in a weeks-long phishing attempt leading up to the theft of roughly $5m in bitcoin in January, according to an incident report said to be drafted internally by the bitcoin exchange.

The confidential document, posted to Reddit by a single-purpose account, offers an in-depth look into what is believed to be the inside story of the hack, which resulted in the loss of just under 19,000 BTC earlier this year. Since then, the company has offered scant details on what took place behind the scenes, citing confidentiality regarding the investigation into the lost funds.

The report’s findings are notable as they illustrate the risks facing bitcoin exchanges, including social engineering attacks in which personal information is used to trick victims into providing a means of access to sensitive materials.

In the case of Bitstamp, those behind the attack used Skype and email to communicate with employees and attempt to distribute files containing malware by appealing to their personal histories and interests. Bitstamp’s system became compromised after systems administrator Luka Kodric downloaded a file that he believed had been sent by a representative for an organization that was seeking his membership.

The report, attributed to Bitstamp general counsel George Frost, explained:

“On 11th December, as part of this offer, the attacker sent a number of attachments. One of these, UPE_application_form.doc, contained obfuscated malicious VBA script. When opened, this script ran automatically and pulled down a malicious file from IP address 185.31.209.145, thereby compromising the machine.”

Ultimately, the attackers were able to access two servers containing the wallet.dat file for Bitstamp’s hot wallet and the passphrase for that file.

The information contained in the report is said to be sourced from a third-party investigation conducted by digital forensics firm Stroz Friedberg, as well as from investigators working for the US Secret Service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and UK-based cybercrime authorities.

As of the report’s drafting, the investigation into the hack was still ongoing but an arrest was expected in the near future. The report alludes to an effort by investigators to create "a ‘honey trap’ to lure [the attacker] into the UK in order to make an arrest."

Bitstamp declined to comment on the authenticity of the report when reached. A representative for Stroz Friedberg was not immediately available for comment.

Extended phishing attempt

According to the report, the earliest phishing attempt took place on 4th November, when one of the attackers contacted Bitstamp chief technology officer Damian Merlak offering free tickets to a punk rock festival.

Chief operating officer Miha Grcar was contacted by Skype in mid-Novemer by someone posing as a reporter. In that exchange, the individual cited past articles written by Grcar when he himself was a reporter covering news in Greece.

The report notes:

“On 26th November, as part of this from within an offline file (such as a Word document). exchange, ivan.foreignpolicy attempted to send a word document of a recent article, ostensibly seeking comment from Mr Grcar. Mr Grcar declined to accept the document.”

Two days prior, Bitstamp support manager Anzej Simicak was also reached by way of Skype, and in that instance the attacker posed as someone seeking more information on RippleWise, a project for which Simicak acts as COO.

In early December, several more Bitstamp staff members were contacted, including Kodric, whose account was ultimately compromised. Employee Miha Hrast’s computer was then compromised after being messaged on Skype, though he did not have access privileges for the servers.

Server compromised

After Kodric’s computer was infiltrated, according to the report, additional malicious files were created between 17th and 22nd December. On 23rd December, Kodric’s account was used to log in to the server that held the wallet.dat file.

A Bitcoin sign is seen in a window in Toronto, May 8, 2014.

On 29th December, the attackers leveraged Kodric’s computer to access the servers containing the wallet.dat file and the wallet passphrase.

“We suspect that the attacker copied the bitcoin wallet file and passphrase at this stage, due to the correlation between the size of these files and the size of the data transfer seen on the logs,” the report notes. “Although the actual content of the transfers cannot be confirmed from the logs available.”

Less than a week later, the report continues, the wallet was emptied, noting:

“On 4th January, the attacker drained the Bitstamp wallet, as evidenced on the blockchain. Although the maximum content of this wallet was 5,000 bitcoins at any one time, the attacker was able to steal over 18,000 bitcoins throughout the day as further deposits were made by customers.”

Quick response

Bitstamp moved quickly to assess and mitigate the damage, according to report, issuing a company-wide alert and establishing an incident response team. The company became aware of the theft on the evening of 4th January, and after auditing the servers discovered the 29th December entry and the data transfer.

Stroz Friedberg began its investigation on 8th January, operating out of the company’s Slovenian office.

The report notes:

“Shortly after discovery of the attack, Bitstamp made an expensive but necessary decision to rebuild our entire trading platform and ancillary systems from the ground up, rather than trying to reboot our old system. We did this from a secure backup that was maintained (according to disaster recovery procedures) in a 'clean room' environment.”

The report added that Bitstamp “decided to deploy our distribution network using Amazon cloud infrastructure servers located in Europe” during that time.

bitcoin receipt

Damage assessed

Bitstamp lost 18,866 BTC from its hot wallet, worth approximately $5,263,614 at a time when the price of bitcoin averaged $279.

Yet the damage went beyond the bitcoins in the hot wallet, the report explained, noting:

“Bitstamp has lost customers, including major clients engaged in providing merchant services in bitcoin, and has suffered significant damage to its reputation, which we are unable to quantify exactly at this point, but which we believe exceeds $2 million.”

Additional costs include $250,000 paid to the Stroz Friedberg team, $250,000 paid to developers to rebuild the platform and $150,000 in consulting and advisory fees. The costs, including those paid to Stroz Friedberg, "are continuing to accrue", according to the report.

In the wake of the attack, the exchange now utilizes multi-sig wallet access and has contracted Xapo to handle its cold wallet storage.

Despite the losses and the alleged reputational damage, the company framed the incident as a learning experience, concluding:

“This was a significant loss for Bitstamp, and it cast further doubt on the safety and integrity of the bitcoin ecosystem. However, it could have been much worse, and we are determined to use this as a learning tool, and as a basis for making improvements in our technology, security protocols, incident response planning and so forth.”
