Binance, the largest digital money platform in the world, has confirmed its exposure to widespread penetration, allowing hackers to steal more than $ 40 million from digital currency.
“The theft affected about 2 percent of our total holdings of Bitcoin but all of our other portfolios are safe and safe,” Binance said, adding that the hackers used a variety of attack methods to carry out a large-scale security breach.
The company said in a statement: “During the attack, hackers stole the API keys and the binary authentication codes needed to connect to the Binance account, as well as other information.”
The platform followed the process of penetration, and discovered the theft of more than 7,000 pieces of Bitcoin and converted into a single portfolio, after hackers stole the contents of the so-called “hot portfolio” of the company.
