The site of the New Zealand cryptocurrency exchange Cryptopia, affected by the actions of hackers in mid-January, resumed operation in a read-only mode.
Users can log into their accounts and check the account balance. At that, the displayed amount will correspond to the state of the account as of January 14 - until the moment the withdrawal of funds begins by the attacker. In the future, these data will be used by the exchange in the calculation of payments to victims.
The Cryptopia manual urged users to update passwords and data for two-factor authentication. Other site functionality is currently unavailable.
Also, for the first time since the moment of hacking, the exchange has announced the return of funds to affected users, indicating that it is at the “final stage”.
The site promised to publish additional information later.
Hackers craked into the Cryptopia exchange in mid-January, having stolen, according to the data of the analytical company Elementus, $ 16 million. Soon the same company reported that another $ 3.2 million had been stolen from Cryptopia.
