gAtO FoUnD a – Cyber Crooks – a user with the nick ‘torstatusnet’ dropped by today posting false claims that the MtGox is now on the .onion network.
Finally MtGox network Tor! Dear friends MtGox site has finally an anonymous site on Tor network Now it is possible to make anonymous transactions in the world’s largest portfolio of bitcoins. I thought they would never join the Tor network, but announced on her website that the new site is in http://6xjgdqlmvesefnkp.onion/. It seems that the MtGox guarantee confidentiality, and I think that will become the major tool for exchanging bitcoins … Pass by there and check …
So here’s the thing (It’s clearly a scam), took 2 minutes to figure it out.
First of all there’s NO official info from MtGox that they have a onion url.
Second is the error message that shows when you enter any random data into the login.
It routes you to this error:
The system has an error. Sorry for the inconvenience, we will try to fix it as soon as possible. Thank you.
If you look closely at the onion url it routes a clearnet domain.
