A phishing message for iOS devices that informed users they had won a prize of 14. 2 ETH in a rewards competition was also part of the event; however, it turned out to be a fraud. A few Android users have also expressed dissatisfaction over receiving similar notifications.

Since then, CoinStats has taken the platform offline to conduct an investigation. Meanwhile, it has placed a placeholder on its webpage and promised to release a more thorough report on the event.

A false website advertisement that attempted to install a configuration program on iOS devices caused some users to file complaints. This program provided a backdoor for attackers to access the impacted devices. The number of people and cash compromised and the extent of the harm inflicted by the security breach are still unknown.

We are currently experiencing a security incident affecting wallets created directly within CoinStats; this does not impact externally connected wallets.

If you have your private key exported, move your funds ASAP.

Through their official X account, CoinStats alerted the community to the event, verified it, and advised users of the impacted wallets to take immediate action. They expressed regret for the inconvenience and assured the users that external wallets were unaffected.

Growing Number of Security Events in the Crypto Industry

One of the most recent security occurrences in the cryptocurrency sector is the hack. Following the BtcTurk breach, Binance CEO Richard Teng most recently stated that the exchange will strengthen security. More than $5.3 million in stolen money that went via the exchange had been temporarily suspended by Binance, demonstrating the platform’s commitment to user money security.

BtcTurk halted all Bitcoin transactions, including deposits and withdrawals, to thwart the attack. The exchange’s hot wallets were the focus of the hackers, who also altered ten cryptocurrency balances. Despite this, BtcTurk guarantees its consumers that most of their assets are secure because they are kept in cold wallets.

At present, CoinStats and BtcTurk are both delving deeply into their individual instances. According to CoinStats, users will receive notification, and a thorough analysis of the breach will be made available shortly. In a similar vein, BtcTurk is working with the relevant authorities to find a solution to prevent the problem from happening again.
