Cryptocurrency broker LiteBit hacked

The crypto-exchange platform reports on being under a hacker attack
11 August 2017   1638, a European cryptocurrency broker, recently warned its users about suspicious activities on its servers.

Thus, someone unknown has successfully accessed the company's data. Luckily, it appears that none of the ID verification documents have been leaked so far. 

The attack took place on August 5th. As the company reports, the customers' funds and their personal data are safe, but the hacker(s) had successfully obtained some server data.

The LiteBite.ey team claims that they were able to identify the source of the data breach. The company has confirmed that the leak has been plugged, although they have not gone into specific details for the time being. 

It is unclear whether the hackers obtained any data, but it is always better to err on the side of caution with this sort of thing, that's why any LiteBit user who has enabled two-factor authentication on their account will be required to re-enable it and change their password. Users who do not have this feature should certainly update their account passwords. 

Craig Wright to Claim to be Satoshi Again

He explained that the false information surrounding Bitcoin and blockchain-derived systems made him come out of the shadows

A senior researcher at nChain, Craig Wright, sent the Commission on the US Exchange Commodity Trading (CFTC) introductory information on cryptocurrency mechanics in response to a request from the Office. But even in the official document he did not miss the opportunity to remind everyone that it was he who allegedly was the creator of Bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto.

My name is Dr. Craig Wright and under the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamoto I completed a project I started in 1997 that was filed with the Australian government in part under an AusIndustry project registered with the Dept. of Innovation as BlackNet. Ethereum is a poorly designed copy of bitcoin designed with the purpose of completing the promise of smart contracts and scripting that were delivered within bitcoin but which were hobbled by the core developers of bitcoin who sought to enable anonymous transactions to exist within the system. 

Craig Wright


Earlier in February, the “self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto” announced that he possesses a patent, allegedly capable of restricting the right to issue JPM Coin.

In October 2017, Craig Wright made a mistake confirming that he was not Satoshi Nakamoto.
