Crypto Management App Denies Being Hacked

Plutus, a crypto finance app founded in 2015, denied social media reports that its database was compromised by a hacking attack launched by alleged threat actors.

On July 9, Israel-based threat intelligence firm, Sixgill, published an alert through their official Twitter account which stated that hackers have been sharing a database stolen from the crypto app since July 7, with no additional details revealed.

According to the screenshot published by Sixgill, the alleged attackers reportedly uploaded the information of 1205 to an unidentified website, together with “bcrypt” passwords. These are related to the password used by the Plutus’ users to access their wallets through the site.
