Тем временем парад «взломанных» ICO продолжается:
On July 23, 2017, around 9:00 a.m. ET, developers at Veritaseum noticed a gradual attack; Veritas (VERI) tokens were being funneled to an unknown wallet.
By exploiting an undisclosed weakness in Veritaseum’s system, the attacker slowly funneled around $8.5 million worth of VERI tokens away from the company, according to CEO and founder Reggie Middleton, who made a post on a social media forum. On the heels of a heated debate over a lack of security on social media that followed a hack of CoinDash, Veritaseum was under scrutiny by community members who were skeptical of the company’s security protocols that lacked SSL, or cryptographic protocols used to relay information across a computer network.
Hackers hijacked CoinDash’s initial coin offering Monday, stealing $7.7 million in cryptocurrency from the nascent trading platform.
The attack occurred during a 15-minute period for “whitelist contributors” prior to the public ICO. During that time, the hackers were able to compromise the CoinDash website and swap out the CoinDash Token Sale address with one under their control.
CoinDash said in an advisory published today that more than 2,000 investors sent 37,000 ETH, (Ether or ethereum). ETH is trading this afternoon at approximately $209 per.
The organization said it has brought in law enforcement and is investigating the attack. Investors, meanwhile, will be credited, CoinDash said in its statement.
