Hotbit said that it suffered a serious cyber attack on April 29th, which caused a large number of basic services to be paralyzed. At the same time, the attacker tried to hack into Hotbit's wallet, but this behavior was identified and blocked by the risk control system. Since the attacker could not access any cryptocurrency assets, he deleted Hotbit's database. Hotbit is currently checking the authenticity and security of the backup data, and will restore servers and services later. At the same time, Hotbit claimed that the attackers obtained plaintext customer information stored in the database, including mobile phone numbers, email addresses, and encrypted currency asset data. Therefore, it is recommended that users pay attention to prevent phishing attacks.
