Though the websites of crypto exchanges are designed on a very secure server, however, a single bug can let hackers in and make transactions of millions like we witnessed in the case of Coincheck. Once control of these accounts had been taken, the attackers created a trading API key for each account - but then did nothing except bide their time.
After the investigation, Binance has identified 31 accounts which appear to belong to the hackers, and every single abnormal trade executed in the VIA/BTC market is going to be reversed. "Withdrawal requests were then attempted from these accounts immediately afterwards", Binance explained.
Fortunately, the cryptocurrency exchange was able to freeze the coins deposited by the bad actors and to refund an equivalent amount in Bitcoins to affected users' accounts. "Not only did the hacker not steal any coins out, their own coins have also been withheld".
In the wake of the attack, many have praised the speed of the team's reaction and its effectiveness. Binance also said that all funds are safe from that hack attempt.
"There are still some users whose accounts where phished by these hackers and their BTC were used to buy VIA or other coins". Binance was, however, unable to reverse some of the trades from some of the targeted accounts by the criminals.
"As in a football match, you can't just play defense", he tweeted. "We need to actively prevent any instances of hacking before they occur, as well as follow through after-the-fact", the firm argued.
Binance said that even though the attack was ultimately unsuccessful, "it was clear it was a large-scale, organised effort". This needs to be addressed. Binance founder Zhao Changpeng has made a decision to face the hackers and is offering $250,000 payable in cryptocurrency for anyone with information that would lead to the arrest of these hackers who wanted to collapse the exchange.
If multiple sources/segments of data are used to lead to the final legal arrests, the bounty may be split between sources.
In bid further bid to prevent these attacks and ensure any such attempts don't go unpunished they also announced a $10 million reserve as bounty funds.
