Hive-Engine Hacked

in LeoFinance9 days ago

So it’s been a big night for Hive-Engine. Hacked by a disgruntled Person who stole 500k Hive and 1.05 BTC. Aggroed’s post regarding the whole event is here: https://peakd.com/hive-engine/@aggroed/good-news-bad-news-good-news-a-hack-p2p-and-a-white-gray-hat

The hacker accessed the H-E node and changed the balances by the reports. Thankfully the Hive was returned but the BTC has not been. Probably goes to show what is important and what is not to some at the moment!

Thankfully no LEO Leo balances were manipulated. It is scary how easy it is for a centralised node to be accessed and funds manipulated. Hopefully there are secure measures put in place to stop the list occurring again...

I am sure there will be more to come from this throughout the day.

Thanks for reading

This is why people have been crying for decentralization of Hive engine, single point of failure will always be a drawback! Wow, it would have been a much crazier blow if all balances were messed with damn!

I hope the HE team takes proper steps to secure and retrieve lost funds

Pretty insane, and scary to read that it’s so easy to do...

Yikes! Yeah, they're going to have to do something about that. Immediately... because now that someone's done it, others may know it's possible and try something worse.

Why use all those tags that are irrelevant

They are all Hive-Engine tokens? Is this information not relevant and important to all H-E tokens?
