MUFG: We Found 'Source' of $60 Million Hack of Crypto Exchange Zaif MUFG: We Found 'Source' of $60 Million Hack of Crypto Exchange Zaif
Cybersecurity researchers working for a subsidiary of Japans largest bank believe that they have found the hackers who stole $60 million from Japanese crypto exchange Zaif in an attack earlier this year. According to a press release published on Monday, Japan Digital Design Co. (JDD) a subsidiary of banking giant MUFG partnered with local cybersecurity researchers to monitor the stolen funds as the attackers attempted to move them and, presumably, launder them into fiat currency. As CCN reported, the Zaif hack occurred in September and saw the thieves abscond with about $40 million in customer funds, along with $20 million that belonged to the exchange. The funds were denominated in bitcoin (BTC), bitcoin cash (BCH), and monacoin (MONA). This piece was first found by us on November 05, 2018 1:41 PM.
