The Verge cryptocurrency (XVG) suffered a 51% attack on April 5th. An attacker exploited several bugs in the XVG code that enabled them to gain a majority of the mining power and generate free coins for themselves. The response from Verge?

It looks like there will be interesting times ahead in the wake of this hack.
