Hackers Pull Off $12,000 Bitcoin Heist

Who steals Bitcoin? Well, besides hackers, who risks jail for $12k in Bitcoin?

A Bitcoin transaction services company says that hackers broke into one of its brokerage accounts last week, nabbing more than $12,000 worth of the digital currency. That attack knocked Bitinstant offline over the weekend. The company says that while it lost Bitcoins, no customers were affected by the hack.
