    This is still developing news, so before bitching and moaning, here are 1600+ posts to read through:


    Not sure if a scam or they really have the files, but they asked for Bitcoins from both parties, and whoever pays first gets the files...

    Let's assume this is true. That could be the end of Bitcoins. (we have a thread about it, where we said, it only exists until the US government allows it)

    P.S.: It is possible that not the original hacker(s) is asking for the money, but someone else is piggybacking the news...
    Also, this could be a planted fake, a la the Rather files...

    Edit: Confirmation:
