Interesting /. story about Zcoin

Although, I'm not convinced that whatever crime was carried out here was actually a theft...

yeah it sounds like they were able to counterfeit that many coins....in which case I suppose that they DID steal from the exchanges when they sold those coins. although I agree that the definitions can get murky here.
