Bitcoin rebounds to all-time high, shrugs off cryptocurrency hack

Bitcoin Falls After $31 Million Theft of Cryptocurrency Tether

According to a now deleted post on its website, Tether said a "malicious action by an external attacker" resulted in the theft, CoinDesk said. "Tether integrators must take immediate action ... to prevent further ecosystem disruption".

Tether said it has taken steps to suspend the Tether.to backend wallet service temporarily while it performs an investigation of the attack to ensure it does not happen again.

Unlike many digital currencies, which tend to fluctuate wildly against the dollar, Tether is pegged to the USA currency.

Users are urged not to accept USDT from this address or any address downstream from it.

We are providing new builds of Omni Core to the community. The attacker is holding funds in the following address: 16tg2RJuEPtZooy18Wxn2me2RhUdC94N7r. "Accordingly, any and all exchanges, wallets, and other Tether integrators should install this software immediately in order to prevent loss", the company wrote. As mentioned above, the company has also rolled out an update to Omni Core, its software for partners. USDT is a cryptocurrency token pegged to the U.S. dollar, which is fully backed by assets in the company's reserve account. "Those tokens will be returned to treasury once the Omni Layer protocol enhancements are in place".

According to SpeedflyChris, the source of the vulnerability appears to be connected with the wallet used to steal 19000BTC from Bitstamp three years ago.

The company, which helps exchanges convert fiat currency into tokens and aims to serve as a proxy for the USA dollar, said in a statement on its website that $30,950,010-worth of its cryptocurrency USDT was taken from its treasury wallet on November 19 and sent to an unauthorized bitcoin address.

ETHNews will continue to provide details about Tether's missing funds as they become available.
