Apparently frustrated by a lack of information about how Mt. Gox lost hundreds of millions of dollars in a security lapse, hackers hit the personal blog of Bitcoin exchange’s chief executive to level charges of fraud.

The Reddit account and personal blog of Mt. Gox CEO Mark Karpeles, MagicalTux.net, were hijacked Sunday and defaced with a post that alleged the exchange kept some of the coins allegedly stolen in fraudulent withdrawals. Hackers also posted a 716MB ZIP file that allegedly contained data stolen from Mt. Gox servers on the sites as well as to Pastebin.

The data dump claims that 951,116.21905382 bitcoins were deposited into Mt. Gox. The embattled exchange filed for bankruptcy last month, saying that Mt. Gox lost nearly 750,000 customer bitcoins, as well as 100,000 of the exchange’s own bitcoins.
