BREAKING: Bitcoin.org Hacked by Scammers

Bitcoin.org, the oldest cryptocurrency-related website that was registered by Satoshi Nakamoto and Martti Malmi, is currently displaying a fake giveaway announcement in the form of a popup.

The bad actors behind the scam are urging people to send Bitcoin to their address, promising to return double the amount one sends them.The website, which was operated by pseudonymous developer “Cobra,” recently faced multiple denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. It’s not clear who is in charge of the website as of now.In July, Bitcoin.org was forced to remove the Bitcoin white paper after self-proclaimed Satoshi Craig Wright won his copywrite infringement case by a default judgment.
