Major Bitcoin Exchange Slammed with DDoS Attack

Bitcoin transactions at one of the world’s largest Bitcoin exchanges were interrupted late Thursday night by a ‘stronger than average’ DDos attack that affected the Bitcoin rate of exchange. No word on who was behind the latest round of cyber attacks.

The system is also used to trade in Bitcoins, and Mt. Gox said in a support message on Friday that it was unable to process deposits and withdrawals through Dwolla.
