They got hacked. The old free Bitcoin scam. Into a black hole it goes, nothing comes back to the poor users.

That's only around $17k. Much lower than what I expected.

It's not the worst they could do...serving malicious bitcoin code is much worse, as currently only command line tools can check the integrity of a new downloaded Bitcoin core client.

It's completely down now.

cut off at the DNS level it looks like
