“In a statement sent out by its founder, open source online Stellar wallet BlackWallet has claimed to have been hacked,” CNN reported late on Monday.
The attack apparently was a phishing attack aimed at the BlackWallet’s hosting provider.
“User ‘orbit84′ on reddit posted that a hacker gained access to his hosting provider account and changed the DNS settings to his own hosted version of BlackWallet. The attackers’ wallet, which the author posted a link to, appears to have amassed around $400,000 worth of cryptocurrency Stellar,” the report added.
The hackers have reportedly moved the money to Bittrex – a virtual currency exchange, where they are likely to convert it into another digital currency to hide their tracks.
It’s now game of risk. A word is enough for the wish. He who have ears let him hear. To be on safe side, kindly stop all the mining activities from New launched sites because it might likely be on your neck.
