Bitstamp reported that multiple operating wallets were damaged, resulting in the loss of 19,000 bitcoins. The company was hacked by multiple phishing attacks in the months before the attack. An employee downloaded a malicious file that allowed an attacker to access the password of the company's hot wallet and the server including the wallet.dat file.
