One of the world's largest Bitcoin mining pools, BTC.com, has been the victim of a cyberattack. According to a company press release, the hackers stole about $3,000,000 worth of crypto assets, of which $700,000 belong to customers and $2,300,000 to the company.
Upon discovering the incident, BTC.com immediately reported the incident to Chinese law enforcement. According to experts, this is what helped to snatch part of the stolen funds from the clutches of hackers.
In addition, the pool has taken steps to prevent similar cyberattacks in the future by optimizing internal security technologies "to more effectively block and intercept hackers." BTC.com is currently operating as normal and customer funds are safe.
