The Bitcoin and Ethereum virtual currencies have a reputation for being dangerous, but it seems like some of them are actually useful.
That reputation is being bolstered by a recent spate of attacks.
We spoke with two cybercriminals who have used Bitcoin and other virtual currencies in attacks that have disrupted websites.
“The most important thing for us to keep in mind is that this is the real world,” said Adam Gaudreau, who runs the website Cryptoworld.
“We’re talking about money that is being spent on a website that’s already hacked.
We don’t have to worry about what they’re going to do to it.
It’s not a threat, it’s a threat to their system.”
The attacks are taking place in the United States, Canada, and Europe.
They’ve been taking place for months.
“What we’re seeing in this wave is the biggest thing to date that we’re getting,” said John H. Mihalchik, CEO of the National Association of Cybercrime Investigators.
“They’re attacking legitimate websites and stealing Bitcoins.
They’re using malicious software to do it.
And they’re using the most advanced techniques and techniques.”
The hackers have targeted several large websites, including Forbes, TechCrunch, and the Huffington Post.
One of the attacks that targeted Forbes was traced to a Russian company, according to a statement from the company.
The attack targeted the Forbes email address.
The company said the company was working with law enforcement.
“As always, Forbes takes this matter very seriously,” the statement read.
“In the coming days, Forbes will be working with the FBI to assist them in the investigation.”
Mihm said his firm’s work with the U.S. Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security has led to arrests of Russian nationals suspected of being behind the attacks.
“If you’re not aware of the fact that there are people in this country that are working with criminals and criminals in Russia, this is going to be very, very scary,” he said.
Muhm also pointed to Bitcoin as being a useful medium of exchange, noting that some Bitcoin exchanges offer a number of services to people that are not necessarily Bitcoin users.
He said some of those services include: transferring cash, paying bills, paying rent, and purchasing food and other goods.
“A lot of people are going to look at this and be like, ‘This is really, really cool.
It doesn’t have any actual value,'” Mihlchik said.
The attacks have taken place in Europe.
Earlier this week, a Bitcoin-based scamming group called the ‘Darkwallet’ published a document that claimed to be from the United Kingdom, but was actually a fake from Ukraine.
The document claimed to offer Bitcoin to people who have paid a large sum of money in Bitcoin.
The group was able to identify a UK Bitcoin exchange, which accepted the payment.
That exchange then started issuing Bitcoins to people.
Makhlchick said the Darkwallet scam was being carried out by a Russian cybercriminal, but said he’s not aware if it’s connected to the Russian government.
“I think it’s more likely that this individual has been operating in Russia,” Mihchik added.
“He is certainly not affiliated with the Russian Government.”
Hacking groups often target businesses, and sometimes individuals.
One group called Hacking Team is known for attacking companies and companies associated with individuals.
The organization has used the Tor network to hide its activities.
The hacker group has been targeting businesses in the U:yS.
and has targeted some high-profile individuals.
Miahchik described the group’s attacks as a form of extortion.
“These criminals are using these services to get a cut of the transaction,” he told us.
“It’s extortion to have these companies give you money or sell you stuff.
These are just a few of the ways that they’re exploiting these services.”
Muhlchie said the Hacking team is active in Europe, and has recently attacked businesses in France and Spain.
The attackers have also targeted banks and credit card companies in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
The Darkwallet group claims to be “the first company in Europe to accept Bitcoin and it is working hard to keep up,” the group said in a statement.
The latest attack took place on Wednesday.
Hacking Teams Twitter account has since been deleted.
Mghtichik said he has heard about some of the attackers and that it appears that some are from Ukraine, where the group is based.
The attacker told the website CryptoCompare that he got the name of the group from his Russian counterparts.
“There’s a lot of Russian hackers, and they’re very aggressive,” he claimed.
Some of these attacks have been successful and some of these banks have been shut down
