Το Coinapult ξεκινάει ξανά την λειτουργία του
Το Coinapult ανοίγει ξανά τις πόρτες λίγο καιρό μετά την κυβερνοεπίθεση που δέχθηκε και που είχε ως αποτέλεσμα την απώλεια 150 btc.
Today we are happy to announce the full restoration of Coinapult services. Users can now deposit BTC and Lock in addition to withdrawing and Unlocking.
On March 17th, an unauthorized withdrawal of 150 BTC were made from our hot wallet. We immediately notified our users and took all services offline. Our security team began investigating the attack while a police report was filed, including our initial incidence report.
Despite further in depth analysis, we have not yet been able to determine the specific entry point of the attack. We took extensive measures to protect against this sort of thing, and the hacker covered his tracks. Unfortunately, our own disk encryption and other security measures make forensics harder as well.
Όπως ανακοίνωσαν στο official Blog το site πλέον τρέχει σε νέους server ενώ έχουν εφαρμόσει νέα αυξημένα μέτρα ασφαλείας ώστε να αποτρέψουν μελλοντικές παρόμοιες επιθέσεις
In the past two weeks we have been working to restore full wallet service by rebuilding and rewriting any affected areas. Due to the breach and follow up DDOS attacks, we have moved all operations onto new servers at a new hosting location. In addition, CloudFlare is now protecting us against DOS.
Specifically, we replaced our hot wallet with a 2 of 3 multisig system which currently requires manual cosigning by a Coinapult executive for each withdrawal. Thanks to Coinkite for providing an easy way to manage the new wallet.
This manual cosigning is an extremely safe method of operation, but will result in delays making withdrawals. Our team will only be cosigning transactions during the hours of 9am-9pm in Panama (UTC−5).
