The alternative crypto currency exchange AllCrypt has apparently been hacked with 42 BTC stolen by the hackers. The website of the exchange is currently down, showing just a message explaining the situation a bit, though not a lot of details are available and currently the future of the exchange is uncertain. The stolen Bitcoins might not seem that much, but for a smaller alternative crypto currency exchange even such an amount is not small. It seems that the hacker used an exploit in WordPress to breach the security of the exchange and steal the Bitcoins from AllCrypt.

Ironically AllCrypt tweeted “Too small and insignificant to be a target of the hacks this week. Your coins are safe here because no one cares to hack us” on 2/16/2015 (twitter: All_Crypt/status/567551838719705091).

I used the exchange for JackpotCoin and CannabisCoin , when it was the first exchange to have those coins. Not the prettiest of sites, but the privacy feature of not needing an email for signup was nice. Also it had pretty good action on those and a few other coins at one time.
