A source says, the Manhattan U.S. Attorney has sent subpoenas to numerous companies that do business with Mt. Gox and other bitcoin exchanges to seek information on how they handled recent cyber attacks. The office of Preet Bharara subpoenaed Mt. Gox and other businesses to get a better understanding of the nature of the cyber attacks and how the exchanges dealt with them. Mt.

Gox, where bitcoin fell to about $135 from $828.99 before February 7.
