The first murder because of the bitcoins committed in Turkey

The security forces of Turkey detained a group of suspects in the first murder in the country due to the crypto currency. On Monday, September 18, referring to the Turkish information channel NTV, TASS reported.

The victim, according to the channel, was a 22-year-old young man. His body was found three days ago in the car. The investigation believes that after the murder the criminals tried to unlock the mobile phone with their finger and get access to the application for work with bitcoins, but could not.

It is specified that there are four detainees.

Bitcoin is a crypto currency. The concept of the system was published in November 2008. The author is hiding under the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamoto, there are several versions of who is behind this name, but none of them is confirmed; perhaps it is a team. In early September, the exchange rate of the digital currency reached a historic high, breaking the mark of five thousand dollars.

 

 


Our goal is to protect the owners of bitcoins from all existing threats and new ones looking much more dangerous, such as #murderware and blood hat hackers.

BTCWALL will become not only the most reliable bitcoin storage but also the first commercial wallet for bitcoins. This is the first wallet that will hide the use of bitcoins to protect against #murderware, and the wallet will also have a built-in response center that will analyze and send information to the police if you are tortured or robbed. And in the future will have its own private security company to ensure the safety of the owners of bitcoins. And of course your bitcoins can not be stolen remotely, it only works with the constant use of cold storage, is easy to use and has additional security and anonymity built into it.

To create a service for protecting bitcoins and their owners, the platform will issue 80 million tokens within the ICO (destruction of the unsold balance at the end). 40% of the profits from the created BTCWALL purse and services complementing it will be distributed among all owners of BTCW tokens. BTCW tokens will be supported by the BTCWALL wallet, used for the work of the built-in anonymous exchange in the purse, for payment of premium subscriptions for BTCWALL services and for payment of the services of an international private security company. Every new crime against the owners of bitcoins that got into the press creates a demand for tokens and services of BTCWALL.

The planned profit, depending on the amount of funds raised, ranges from 270,000,000 $ to 1,570,000,000 $ for the first year, or from 7,850% to 13,500%, profits will come from sold wallet licenses, premium subscriptions, services of a private security company , and the built-in anonymous distributed exchange in the wallet.

We plan to raise from $ 2,000,000 to $ 60,000,000 (see the road map for details)

pre-ICO will take place in September 2017, a discount of 70%

Identity Thieves Hijack Cellphone Accounts to Go After Virtual Currency

Identity Thieves Hijack Cellphone Accounts to Go After Virtual Currency

Hackers have discovered that one of the most central elements of online security — the mobile phone number — is also one of the easiest to steal.

In a growing number of online attacks, hackers have been calling up Verizon, T-Mobile U.S., Sprint and AT&T and asking them to transfer control of a victim’s phone number to a device under the control of the hackers.

Once they get control of the phone number, they can reset the passwords on every account that uses the phone number as a security backup — as services like Google, Twitter and Facebook suggest.

“My iPad restarted, my phone restarted and my computer restarted, and that’s when I got the cold sweat and was like, ‘O.K., this is really serious,’” said Chris Burniske, a virtual currency investor who lost control of his phone number late last year.

A wide array of people have complained about being successfully targeted by this sort of attack, including a Black Lives Matter activist and the chief technologist of the Federal Trade Commission. The commission’s own data shows that the number of so-called phone hijackings has been rising. In January 2013, there were 1,038 such incidents reported; by January 2016, that number had increased to 2,658.

But a particularly concentrated wave of attacks has hit those with the most obviously valuable online accounts: virtual currency fanatics like Mr. Burniske.

Within minutes of getting control of Mr. Burniske’s phone, his attackers had changed the password on his virtual currency wallet and drained the contents — some $150,000 at today’s values.

Most victims of these attacks in the virtual currency community have not wanted to acknowledge it publicly for fear of provoking their adversaries. But in interviews, dozens of prominent people in the industry acknowledged that they had been victimized in recent months.

“Everybody I know in the cryptocurrency space has gotten their phone number stolen,” said Joby Weeks, a Bitcoin entrepreneur.

Mr. Weeks lost his phone number and about a million dollars’ worth of virtual currency late last year, despite having asked his mobile phone provider for additional security after his wife and parents lost control of their phone numbers.

The attackers appear to be focusing on anyone who talks on social media about owning virtual currencies or anyone who is known to invest in virtual currency companies, such as venture capitalists. And virtual currency transactions are designed to be irreversible.

Accounts with banks and brokerage firms and the like are not as vulnerable to these attacks because these institutions can usually reverse unintended or malicious transactions if they are caught within a few days.

But the attacks are exposing a vulnerability that could be exploited against almost anyone with valuable emails or other digital files — including politicians, activists and journalists.

Last year, hackers took over the Twitter account of DeRay Mckesson, a leader of the Black Lives Matters movement, by first getting his phone number.

In a number of cases involving digital money aficionados, the attackers have held email files for ransom — threatening to release naked pictures in one case, and details of a victim’s sexual fetishes in another.

The vulnerability of even sophisticated programmers and security experts to these attacks sets an unsettling precedent for when the assailants go after less technologically savvy victims. Security experts worry that these types of attacks will become more widespread if mobile phone operators do not make significant changes to their security procedures.

“It’s really highlighting the insecurity of using any kind of telephone-based security,” said Michael Perklin, the chief information security officer at the virtual currency exchange ShapeShift, which has seen many of its employees and customers attacked.

Mobile phone carriers have said they are taking steps to head off the attacks by making it possible to add more complex personal identification numbers, or PINs, to accounts, among other steps.

But these measures have not been enough to stop the spread and success of the culprits.

After a first wave of phone porting attacks on the virtual currency community last winter, which was reported by Forbes, their frequency appears to have ticked up, Mr. Perklin and other security experts said.

In several recent cases, the hackers have commandeered phone numbers even when the victims knew they were under attack and alerted their cellphone provider.

Adam Pokornicky, a managing partner at Cryptochain Capital, asked Verizon to put extra security measures on his account after he learned that an attacker had called in 13 times trying to move his number to a new phone.

But just a day later, he said, the attacker persuaded a different Verizon agent to change Mr. Pokornicky’s number without requiring the new PIN.

A spokesman for Verizon, Richard Young, said that the company could not comment on specific cases, but that phone porting was not common.

“While we work diligently to ensure customer accounts remain secure, on occasion there are instances where automated processes or human performance falls short,” he said. “We strive to correct these issues quickly and look for additional ways to improve security.”

Mr. Perklin, who worked at a Canadian mobile phone operator before joining ShapeShift, said most phone companies would write down any additional security requests in the notes of a customer account.

But agents can generally act on their own, he said, regardless of what is in the notes, and can easily miss what is in the notes.

The vulnerability of phone numbers is the unintended consequence of a broad push in the security industry to institute a practice, known as two-factor authentication, that is supposed to help make accounts more secure.

Many email providers and financial firms require customers to tie their online accounts to phone numbers, to verify their identity. But this system also generally allows someone with the phone number to reset the passwords on these accounts without knowing the original passwords. A hacker just hits “forgot password?” and has a new code sent to the commandeered phone.

Mr. Pokornicky was online at the time his phone number was taken, and he watched as his assailants seized all his major online accounts within a few minutes.

“It felt like they were one step ahead of me the whole time,” he said.

The speed with which the attackers move has convinced people who are investigating the hacks that the attacks are generally run by groups of hackers working together.

Danny Yang, the founder of the virtual currency security firm BlockSeer, said he had traced several attacks to internet addresses in the Philippines, though other attacks have been tracked to computers in Turkey and the United States.

Mr. Perklin and other people who have investigated recent hacks said the assailants generally succeeded by delivering sob stories about an emergency that required the phone number to be moved to a new device — and by trying multiple times until a gullible agent was found.

“These guys will sit and call 600 times before they get through and get an agent on the line that’s an idiot,” Mr. Weeks said.

Coinbase, one of the most widely used Bitcoin wallets, has encouraged customers to disconnect their mobile phones from their Coinbase accounts.

But some customers who have lost money have said the companies need to take more steps by doing things like delaying transfers from accounts on which the password was recently changed.

“Coinbase looks like a bank, stores millions of dollars like a bank, but you don’t realize how weak its default protections are until you are robbed of thousands of dollars in minutes,” said Cody Brown, a virtual reality developer who was hacked in May.

Mr. Brown wrote a widely circulated post about his experience, in which he lost around $8,000 worth of virtual currency from his Coinbase account, all as he sat online and watched, getting no response from the customer service at either Coinbase or Verizon.

A spokesman for Coinbase said the company “has invested significant resources to build internal tools to help protect our customers against hackers and account takeovers, including compromise through phone porting.”

The irreversibility of Bitcoin transactions has often been lauded as one of the most important qualities of virtual currency because it makes it harder for banks and governments to intervene in transactions.

But Mr. Pokornicky said the virtual currency industry needed to alert new users to the added risk that comes with the new features of the technology.

“It’s powerful to be able to control your money and move things without any permission,” he said. “But that privilege requires a clear understanding of the downside.”

TORTURE AND MURDER OF BITCOIN OWNERS | ПЫТКИ ЗА БИТКОЙН

TORTURE AND MURDER OF BITCOIN OWNERS | ПЫТКИ ЗА БИТКОЙН

Torture within 3 hours. Demanding bitcoin. Three strong people. Beat, intimidated, promised to kill.
It all started with the appeal to me of one of the Gopnik people – a man who was briefly acquainted with me, tk. a little over a year ago I made a presentation on my past work in the office ([Suspicious link removed]/PAoJSR). Later, at the end of August, he contacted me and wished to receive information about bitcoon from me. Since this person was familiar to me, I decided that I was not threatened, and had several meetings with him, telling about bitkoyne, about working with purses, about safe storage, and so on.He, his name is Leonid, introduced himself as an intermediary who would like to help his “friends” invest money in bitokoyn. But since all sides feared for their money and did not trust each other, it was necessary for me to confirm my solvency in case of unforeseen situations.On the 4th of September we wrote off and I was invited to come, consult friends of Leonid and, if possible, “prove” my competence with my money, by presenting accounts. I explained that it was impossible. Leonidas still insisted on meeting and invited me to his acquaintances. I had to come and consult people.In the evening, on the 4th of September, at about 8 pm, Leonid met me at Puzataya Hut in Poznyaky and said that they were ready to go to people so that I could tell them everything, showed how bitokoyin works. I was invited to a car parked near the Pyramid shopping center. I explained that I should have dinner and only after I can go to the meeting place. When I finished all the cases, I left the Pyramid shopping center and saw that Leonid and his accomplices (namely, these people would be complicit in the crime) were stopped by the police to check the documents. I approached them and Leonid explained that nothing much was going on, just checking suspicious cars, and policemen were “friends.” All four or five people stood and giggled. There was an impression that they know each other. I realized that I had to go home, but unfortunately I did not suspect anything bad.In the evening, on the 4th of September, about 10 pm, a man named Anton Nepeyevoda wrote to me in a telegram saying that Leonid was leaving to take me and take me to the “investors”. An hour later, Leonid and two others came to my house, that they had been with him earlier at 8 pm near the “Pyramid” shopping center. I sat in the car, having written down the number (Volkswagen or Hyundai, AA622, as it turned out, I did not record the number in full).At 22:53 I arrived at Yaroslaviv Val 13/2-B, to the club “Santa Muerte”.

In the club went to a small room:

Leonid again asked me if I brought a crypto currency to show to “investors”, but I explained that I do not have anything, and I would not show my money to anyone. I was told that I allegedly “violated the agreement” that I did not bring money to demonstrate that Leonid would look bad in the eyes of “investors.” To which I replied that he explained everything to him in Puzata and Leonid knew this. Leonid and his accomplice came out “to talk with” investors. “They brought a hookah. Everything looked as if everyone had come to the deal.

When they returned, they told me that the “investor” was talking to me, that everyone had to turn off all the phones. All supposedly turned off the phones. However, there was no “investor”, he did not appear. Leonid told me that he is ready to give me money right now without checking that the money must be recounted and conclude a deal. He threw me a bundle of money in a plastic bag, but I refused to take them, thinking that it could be a test purchase of the SBU or the MVD. To which Leonid said that the money is “fake”, and I owe them money. Should “just like that.” To my question, whether this is a stop-stop, Leonid answered: “Yes, gop-stop.”

Leonid said that he will keep me in the institution all night, he will torture, or even kill and bury, but he will pull the money out of me. He said that he has connections in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, that they are not the first time engaged in such matters. I explained that the excitement is extremely undesirable to me, because I have health problems and at any time because of the excitement there can be a heart attack. Leonid said that he did not care that I would leave the club “Santa Muerte” only after giving money. Or I’ll stay here forever. I replied that I did not have anything, which was followed by a blow to the head. I became very worried, the pulse could have reached 150 beats per minute. I once again explained that I am a “core” that I want to be released, but Leonid answered that when I give money, and he, allegedly, knows that they have I, I can leave.

One of the accomplices at the request of Leonid brought a black package. Seeing the package, I began to seriously beat with excitement. At that moment, I was scared for my health. Leonid began to search me. He discovered “Tresor” – an apparatus for protecting bitkoynov and immediately accused me of lying, saying that I had deceived him without saying that I had brought bitcoins. Leonid began to demand to include “Trezor and transfer all the crypto-currencies that are on the device to his wallets, which was refused.

“Put on a package,” Leonid told the accomplice. I began to resist as best I could, even more excited. They stopped fighting me, seeing my condition. “Calm down!” – demanded one of the accomplices. But I was all pounded. I began to ask to call an ambulance. “Give us your money – we’ll call!” Leonid answered calmly. I realized that I was threatened with death. However, I did not want to give money to the gopnik, since they could still go on the murder and they would hardly believe that I do not have any money.

My terrible physical condition was, perhaps, the cause of some of the fears of the Gopnik. They went out for a while to consult and discuss further actions. Earlier, gopniki took my phone and tried to turn it on. When they realized that the phone is locked, they put it away from me, so I did not have access to it. When I stayed in the room and one of the Gopnik, I chose the right moment and decided to take a risk, trying to reach out to my Samsung phone, which was previously taken away from me by force. Gopnik did not expect to grab his phone from the table. He rushed to take my phone from me, but I still managed to send an alarm signal from the phone to my friends. Two other gopniki rushed into the room and helped the accomplice to pick up my phone.

I was getting worse and worse. Gopnik, seeing my condition, continued to threaten with physical violence and demand money. Someone brought validol, believing that this could improve my condition. However, the pills did not help. After a while, one of the gopnik, perhaps from the staff, found out that the police came to the club. The staff, according to the police, said that the club is closed and there is no one in it, and this was an obvious lie. The policemen left, and the Gopnik continued to demand money, applying physical strength to me (grabbing and shaking, striking my face, striking my feet).

All this time my phone rang. Called friends. But Gopnik did not react, or sent SMS with the text “I’m busy, call back”. Leonid with podelnikom again left the room to try to access the “Trezor”. Returning, he demanded from me a secret key (words) from his wallet, in order to get to the funds in his wallet. But I, again asking to call an ambulance, explained that secret words are in safe places and he can not get to them. Leonid again attacked me and began to use force, arguing that I remember the secret words for memory. Not having achieved the desired, the Gopnik tried to reassure me, so that I stopped shaking and came back to normal.

After two hours my condition did not improve. Gopnik asked me to give them at least 1000 dollars, which were on my phone, and about which I told them earlier. I had a chance to send an “alarm” again from the phone. But at first they decided not to give the phone to me, but to follow my instructions. I said that in order to unlock my phone, you need to quickly press a certain key three times. In fact, it was the signal “SOS”. They began to press the button. But the phone did not unlock, requiring a password from them. I stated that the phone is new and that it can not be rebooted many times, because in this case it is blocked and you need to enter a secret password, which I do not know, but you need to continue pressing the button. They gave the phone to me in the hands, believing that I would do “right”. I continued to send an alarm.

Unfortunately, as it turned out later, the phone did not send photos via MMS, because the money ran out. But the device was able to send coordinates and make photos of Leonid:

The phone makes two photos simultaneously from two cameras. The face of Leonid, like my face, as well as the situation of the club can be seen quite clearly. When Gopnik understood that it was an alarm signal, and not an unlock, they quickly erased fingerprints from all objects and quickly left the club, possibly fearing that the police would come again. I still continued to shake.

When the Gopnik went away, I took my things thrown by the gopniki and got out of the room, asking the staff to call an ambulance. But the representatives of the club did not react. I realized that I would not get any help here and tried to get out of the basement of the club on my own, sending an alarm again:

Going out into the street, I turned to passers-by and explained that they tried to rob me. They called an ambulance, and a little later came the police and my friends. Perhaps the club’s employees are connected with Leonid and his accomplices, they knew what was happening in the club and would try in every possible way to “hush up” the case. I wrote a statement to the police and hired lawyers. Let’s see if I’m right.

Conclusions: keep your own money in different places and preferably in an encrypted form, only come to meetings with someone accompanying you, and also tell your relatives or friends where you are going.

The main gopnik is Leonid (his alleged phone number is 096 765 8470). The other two I do not know, although there is a number of their car (AA622 **).
