Gone in seconds.....






Hackers have stolen user data and money from Bithumb, one of the top five biggest Ethereum and Bitcoin cryptocurrency exchanges, the company said Friday.
Bithumb said that the thieves stole a database of user information off the personal computer of an employee, rather than off the company's internal network. The attackers allegedly nabbed the names, email addresses, and mobile phone numbers (no passwords, apparently), of more than 31,800 customers, according to a Monday report from Yonhap, a South Korean news wire.
After discovering the breach, which affects roughly 3% of the site's customers, Bithumb reported it to South Korean authorities on June 30, Yonhap said. The robbers have been targeting customers' accounts in an effort to drain their digital currency wallets. The hackers have allegedly made off with hundreds of millions of South Korean won, or tens of thousands of dollars worth of cryptocurrency, according to local media reports.

I don't leave my metal in a vault I have no control over, I don't leave my crypto on an exchange either. Still, it doesn't exactly boost confidence with the public.
