Hacker Managed to Steal Almost 45,000 ETH through Private Key Generation Errors


ISE specialists discovered an unknown hacker who managed to steal almost 45,000 ETH through private key vulnerabilities in the Ethereum blockchain.


Independent Security Evaluators (ISE) senior analyst Adrian Bednarekreported that the hacker was discovered by chance during the research. The company analyzed the possibility of selecting private keys to Ethereum addresses. Obviously, it is not possible to do this in a random way, so the researchers focused on incorrectly generated keys, for example, if there are errors in the software code or random number generator.


Using these methods, analysts were able to pick up 735 private keys. It was subsequently discovered that from some addresses large volumes of transactions were made to one and the same address.

“There was a guy who had an address who was going around and siphoning money from some of the keys we had access to. We found 735 private keys, he happened to take money from 12 of those keys we also had access to. It’s statistically improbable he would guess those keys by chance, so he was probably doing the same thing […] he was basically stealing funds as soon as they came into people’s wallets,” Bednarek said.

To confirm their theory, ISE specialists sent an amount of $1 in ETH for one of these 12 wallets. Despite the fact that the address activity was last observed in July last year, the amount sent was immediately transferred to the intruder’s wallet.


According to rough estimates, the hacker’s catch is about 45,000 ETH, that is, $7.8 million at the current rate.

“Privacy is Luxury” 

The DigitalBank Vault Encryption System provides total privacy and secrecy

that is so much needed nowadays.   

 

You enjoy zero privacy currently, whatever app you are using and believe they are safe to be used, like all types of end to end encrypted solutions that should give you the confidentiality you need, all those apps are absolutely not secure. 

You always download an app and let it access all the data on your smartphone.

You permit a cyber weapon in the form of spyware, to legally assault

your most confidential information.

Today in cybersecurity and cyber defense you need to trust “No One”.

DO NOT TRUST ANY TYPE OF 'SECURE/ENCRYPTED COMMUNICATION DEVICE"

Who is the supplier of the hardware device? How do you know if it is 'clean' or has some backdoor in it that connects to the hacker's servers? 

 

Nobody, make no mistakes about it, no third party is trustable.

 

You have to trust only yourself.

Give to others the keys to your top classified information?

 

Believe Nothing.

How comes that NO documents of Russian Oligarchs are ever leaked to the net?

How they secure their classified databases, communications, and file transfers?

Celebs Trust Nobody.

So how Celebs store their most guarded secrets?

How they secure sensitive data transfers?

What Secret App Celebs are using for securing their privacy?

 

TRUST NOBODY!

According to a recent Gartner report,

the majority of data breaches and cyberattacks exploit third-party cyber gaps.

50 % of companies experienced a significant data breach through a third-party vendor.
