The website was temporarily disabled by Namecheap following a query from Corallo, and according to Cobra, the Bitcoin.org website “may be down for a few days.”

“Looks like Bitcoin.org got hacked and the entire site replaced with a scam asking for free Bitcoin. Do not send funds to that address,”

Matt Corallo.

One of the first Bitcoin websites, Bitcoin.org, has suffered a security breach and has gone offline for the time being.

Bitcoin.org’s anonymous curator Cobra announced on Thursday that the site had been compromised, with the attackers managing to post a scam notice on the website.

Just before Bitcoin.org went offline, users reported a typical fake giveaway announcement on the website. The scammers had already managed to trick users into sending $17,000 to their address.
