Hackers were able to steal almost $ 60 million in cryptocurrencies from the Japanese crypto-exchange Zaif, Cointelegraph reports.

As a result of the attack, which occurred as early as September 14, 4.5 billion yen owned by its users were stolen from the hot wallets of the exchange, as well as 2.2 billion yen, which was the company's assets. Thus, the total loss of Zaif amounted to 6.7 billion yen or about $ 59.7 million.

Tech Bureau Inc, which is the operator of Zaif, in a press release says that it found a server error on September 17, after which the input / output of funds on the exchange was suspended. September 18, the company realized that the error was caused by a hacker attack, and reported the incident to the Financial Services Agency of Japan. Hackers stole 5,966 bitcoins, as well as assets in Bitcoin Cash and MonaCoin.

According to Tech Bureau Inc, Fisco Digital Asset Group will help to partially compensate for the damage caused to users by providing 5 billion yen ($ 44.5 million). Tech Bureau agreed with Fisco to dismiss more than half of its directors and corporate auditors, and Fisco in turn will become its main shareholder.

Earlier this year, Zaif already recognized the existence of a "system malfunction", using which, the clients of the exchange were temporarily able to credit trillions of dollars in their accounts with bitcoins.
