Hackers Attack Gate.io Exchange Infecting 700,000 StatCounter Sites with Bitcoin-Stealing Malware Hackers Attack Gate.io Exchange Infecting 700,000 StatCounter Sites with Bitcoin-Stealing Malware
A group of hackers has recently attacked Gate.io, a crypto exchange, in order to compromise its web analytics platform to infect users. According to reports, these actors have compromised StaTcouter, a famous site based in Ireland, in an attempt to steal Bitcoin from the users of Gate.io. The attack consisted in injecting a malicious code into the script of the page that had a domain that was really like the one from the original page. Named StatConuter?, this new domain was harder to spot than many traps. The ESET, which has found out about this case first, has also affirmed that the domain was also used for a scam back in 2010. ESET is a Slovakian cybersecurity firm that discovers this sort of attack often. This posting was found by us on December 22, 2018 8:27 AM.
