It is a good thing the internet's favourite eccentric was specific about what kind of hack would qualify someone for the $250K bounty for breaching the BitFi wallet as it has been modded twice now.  The most recent hack was executed by a bright 15yr old who managed to get the wallet to run the original DooM; sadly winning the game does not free the BitCoins stored in the wallet, which is what would be required to get the reward.  The Inquirer has links to information on Saleem Rashid and code you can play with yourself. 

Of course, John McAfee has far more pressing cryptocurrency concerns than a mere quarter of a million dollars.

"John McAfee and Bitfi are yet to respond to either hack, aside from quoting an interview which points out that, although hacked, nobody had hacked it to the point of stealing any Bitcoins. "
