“Miljoenenroof van digitale munt Ether”
Vervolg 15:00 uur, iemand heeft als dader een serieuze waarschuwing achtergelaten …
Staat weliswaar volledig in zijn recht maar blijft toch maar anoniem, heeft zijn bericht weer wel met een encryptie-sleutel ondertekend en zal “working with my law firm” eenieder in rechte aanspreken wanneer die hem zijn “reward” zal proberen te onthouden:

An Open Letter
To the DAO and the Ethereum community,
I have carefully examined the code of The DAO and decided to participate after finding the feature where splitting is rewarded with additional ether. I have made use of this feature and have rightfully claimed 3,641,694 ether, and would like to thank the DAO for this reward. It is my understanding that the DAO code contains this feature to promote decentralization and encourage the creation of “child DAOs”.
I am disappointed by those who are characterizing the use of this intentional feature as “theft”. I am making use of this explicitly coded feature as per the smart contract terms and my law firm has advised me that my action is fully compliant with United States criminal and tort law.
===== END SIGNED MESSAGE =====

Gaan we weer …
Iets van een jurist, “Exploiting a known vulnerability in ATM card code doesn’t give you the right to take money that isn’t yours from a bank”:
If you fool an ATM you are hacking or stealing money because you are taking property away which is not yours.
This situation is completely different as it wasn’t a bank or something like this, it isn’t even related to money or property. It was a piece of code and you can do what the code says thats the rule!
A bank never uses “rules” like this. Their rules are pretty strick you give us your money and you can take it back. Here the rule was, you can do what the code says. And the code said you can get all the tokens which are here.
This guy is a joke not a lawyer.
Reddit, “He did nothing wrong. He simply used the code better than others.”:
An Open Letter - From The Hacker
The irony here is impeccable: Ethereum uses smart contract for law but now requires paper law to determine liability. This goes against the core point of Etherum.

Pfft. The attacker will get his money. Or Ethereum dies.
En een poging om de dader te traceren:
The local time puts him on the east coast of Australia, Brisbane
or Sydney most likely. Except he’s talking about US law.
Sidney? Dan weet ik het wel, inwendig ziedend omdat hij de vorige keer zo snel ontmaskerd werd:
Australian Craig Wright claims he is bitcoin founder Satoshi Nakamoto
Wright, 45, is an Australian IT and security consultant, who described himself on a now-deleted LinkedIn page as a “senior management executive information security specialist”.
Until recently he was the director of more than a dozen companies, some involved in cryptocurrency, until he divested himself of 12 of them in the space of a week in July 2015.
Wired and Gizmodo published investigations in December claiming to reveal Wright’s identity based on leaked transcripts, emails and financial records. Wright declined to comment on the stories, which were the subject of scepticism among some of his contemporaries.
The same day his north Sydney home was raided by Australian federal police in connection with a tax investigation, unrelated to bitcoin.
