As we reported earlier, the cryptocurrency exchange Cryptopia, based in New Zealand, went through a major hacker attack, which resulted in significant money losses. We remind you:
However, it seems that the hard times are not over for Cryptopia. The hackers that robbed it earlier went quiet for two weeks just to lull everybody’s vigilance and prepare for a new attack.
According to the statistical data from the company Elementus, the cyber criminals got hold of 1675 ETH from 17 thousand different wallets. In monetary terms, this sum of money amounts to around 181 thousand dollars.
At first, it looked like Cryptopia was moving the assets of its users to protect them, but later on it turned out that those were the hackers moving the money to their cryptocurrency wallets.
Shockingly, some users are still unaware of the hacker attack and keep depositing money onto their wallets, in other words, into the pockets of the hackers.
“The hacker has the private keys and can withdraw funds from any Cryptopia wallet at will,” claimed the Elementus team.
