Time_Ngler (564671) writes "A hacker claiming to have stolen Mitt Romney's tax return is ransoming it for $1 million in BTC. If not paid, he will release it to the world on Sept 28th. The hacker set up two BTC addresses. He stipulated if $1 million is paid to the first, Romney's return will be kept secret forever. However, if $1 million is paid to the second, Romney's return will be released publicly immediately."
