Mining/Exchange Bitcoin Platform NiceHash Hacked: $68 million stolen from Wallet
Hackers have managed to steal $ 60 million in Bitcoin after crossing the security measures of Nicehash - one of the world's most popular companies offering cryptocurrency mining technology.
NiceHash, a Bitcoin marketplace that supplies software needed to miners interested in using their own system resources to generate cryptocurrency, has announced it has been the victim of hackers.
They have stolen 4,736.42 BTC, which, at present value, is over 60 million dollars.
As a result of the break, NiceHash stopped operations for at least 24 hours until they investigate how the breakage occurred and how much exactly was stolen.
Meanwhile, users using the NiceHash mining software are advised to change their passwords.
The security issues of virtual coins so far have focused around Ethereum and had less to do with Bitcoin.
Unfortunately in the past 6 months, two vulnerabilities of Parity virtual wallet have resulted in total losses of more than 180 million dollars.
Bitcoin is at the top of its history, with an accelerated growth of more than $ 14,000.
