Hacking Havoc at Blockchain.info – 8 Millions wallets inaccessible!

8 Millions wallets inaccessible at Blockchain.info after Hackers wreak Havoc!

With more than 8 million Digital Wallet customers, BlockChain is users’ favorite destination to see recent transactions, stats on mined blocks and bitcoin economy charts.

As reported on: https://thehackernews.com/2016/10/blockchain-bitcoin-website.html

A few hours ago, BlockChain team tweeted about the sudden breakdown of the site, saying: “We’re researching a DNS issue and looking into it. We apologize for the inconvenience. Stay tuned.”

“We’re making progress resolving the issue, but it may take upwards of several hours until services are fully restored,” another tweet reads.

However, a Reddit user has noted that “The whois and DNS records suddenly jumped from CloudFlare to a cheap web host.”

It seems that their domain name has been hijacked, which was later confirmed by the BlockChain team on Reddit, saying:

The site was down for more than four hours  and millions of people had no access to their Bitcoins.

Official Statement From BlockChain:

“Earlier today, we discovered our DNS registrar had been compromised. We took immediate action to resolve the issue. To be abundantly cautious, we’re waiting for the DNS to propagate universally across the web before bringing our services back. Once DNS has propagated, we expect to restore services ASAP. Our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience.”

This attack on Blockchain,info is the latest in an ongoing string from Cyber attacks and hacking, we believe that hacking and cyber attacks are the single largest threat to our new digital economy.

We would love to hear your comment on this latest hack.
