The Poloniex crypto-exchange trader under the nickname Poloniex2FASucks detected a bug in the platform security system and then sold the information about it, as he was ignored by the support's team. He shares his history on Reddit.

As the user reports, he managed to easily bypass the two-factor authentication when withdrawing funds from the exchange account:

I managed to withdraw cryptocurrencies from an account without having access to the 2FA device, both for login and for withdrawal confirmation. I withdrew from an account that I picked, having access to the password from a leaked database. ... You open your emails in a client that provides those "preview" images, you've confirmed your outgoing transaction by opening the email.

According to the post, the customer wrote a letter to the Poloniex support service about the vulnerability found, but even after 60 days he did not receive a response.

I'm guessing they have no interest in fixing it, and that it is intentional.

A bit later, it has been reported that the information about the vulnerability was sold.

Finally, Poloniex2FASucks notes that other customers should not trust the company their funds as it can not even implement two-factor authentication on the platform and correctly configure the robots.txt file. He also advises all Poloniex users to withdraw their funds from the stock exchange as soon as possible.

GRAM May be Traded at Liquid at Triple ICO Price

Bloomberg says that Telegram tokens, that may appear at Liquid will be sold by Gram Asia at $4 per token, but there's no official info from Telegram
04 July 2019   1025

Even before the official public release of the cryptocurrency of the messenger, Telegram can increase in price by 200% relative to its value during the initial offer of coins. It is reported by Bloomberg.

As previously reported, Telegram tokens may appear on the Liquid Bitcoin Exchange already on July 10. The distributor is Gram Asia, which calls itself the largest holder of GRAM tokens in Asia. It intends to put up for sale rights to cryptocurrency at $ 4 per unit.

At the same time, one of the investors said to the publication that at the time of purchase the price of 1 Gram was $ 1.33.

It is worth noting, however, that after the announcement of the public sale of Telegram tokens to Liquid, the media reported that this intention had nothing to do with the official plans of Telegram.

Then one of Telegram's investors stated that no one has the right to sell tokens before their official launch in accordance with the signed agreement. Moreover, representatives of the popular messenger noted that they first heard about Gram Asia.

Later, CEO Liquid Mike Kayamora admitted that Telegram has no relation to the placement on Liquid: the deal was concluded exclusively between the exchange and Gram Asia, which allegedly is an incubator for the TON project.

The Block's leading analyst Larry Chermak on several tweets expressed skepticism about the announced Telegram tokenale based on the Liquid stock exchange, saying that he would “think twice before making a decision to invest.”
