$67M in bitcoin stolen as hacking typhoon lashes Hong Kong's Bitfinex

"...and so limited the scale of the breach..." So, a $67M theft is a "limited breach".

Makes me wonder what an unlimited thaft would have looked like.

I'm pretty ignorant about how BTC works in depth, but I wonder whether this scale of theft would have taken some time to execute, and if so, why there were no systems in place that have raised a red flag somewhere (in the context of "withdrawal limits in place at Bitfinex and many other exchanges were mysteriously bypassed".
