Cryptocurrency Exchange Hotbit Hacked: Systems Paralyzed, 2 Million Users Affected

Crypto invester select crypto exchanges wisely don’t put much money in new or unreliable platforms in persuet of new coins. As we won’t be able to do much in case something bad happens.
I also had around $12 there let’s see what happens.

“Dear respected users,
Hotbit just suffered a serious cyber attack starting around 08:00 PM UTC, April 29,2021, which led to the paralyzation of a number of some basic services. Meanwhile, the attackers also tried to hack into Hotbit’s wallets (However, the attempt was identified and stopped by our risk control system).
In this case, Hotbit team has shut down all services for inspection and restoration immediately, and the overall recovery period is expected to be no less than 7 days.

The attacker has already gained access to the database, so your registration phone number, email address and asset data might have leaking risk. However, the password and 2FA key are encrypted so theoriotically should be safe. But from the security point of view, if your account and password on another website or app are the same as Hotbit’s, it is safer to change the password now.

This is the risk of opening accounts on multiple crypto currency exchange apps.

Yeah bro. Although it was significantly big which shows how vulnerable small or new ones could be.
But new coins don’t get listed on big platforms unless they become popular hence people move towards these platform.
