Latest On Instawallet/Bitcoin-Central Security Breach

Latest On Instawallet/Bitcoin-Central Security Breach:

The sites operated by Paymium, including Instawallet, Bitcoin-Central.net and Paytunia show, at the time of this post, the message:

“Down for Maintenance
We have detected a security breach. Services are temporarily suspended until we have thoroughly investigated the situation.”

There is the recommendation that no further deposits to a Bitcoin address for any Instawallet, Bitcoin-Central or Paytunia account be made until further notice.

There was an update posted on Bitcoin-Central to alleviate worry regarding a large transfer from a wallet identified as being Instawallet’s. The message in the update describes the transfer as being funds being sent to an address controlled by Paymium, thus the transfer would be the result of protective action.

Without any other communication yet from Paymium staff, a thread on the BitcoinTalk forum ends up being the source for the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on this development.
