A hacker has held a bold blow thanks to the one who has been able to steal 600 million euros in cryptomon.
The victim was the company Poly Network, a platform based on Blockchain technology for the exchange of cryptomoneds.
When the company realized that 600 million had been taught, he decided to mark the transactions of the stolen cryptomones in a way that was almost impossible to convert this money into currencies.
After this maneuver of the company, in a strange script twist, the hacker decided to return most of the money he had stolen from Poly Network, but not the full amount.
However, the story still becomes stranger. According to the Poly Network itself in its blog, the company has explained that they have maintained direct contact daily with the hacker and that they have shown their "concern" for "the security and deployment strategy of Poly Network".
In addition to maintaining a fluid communication with the person who stole them, Poly Network has delivered a $ 500,000 reward to the hacker for returning money and sharing the details of his modus operandi with the company.
The company refers to the hacker as Mr White Hat (Mr. White Hat, in Spanish) a term in the field of computer security that refers to "ethical" hackers that pirate computer systems from organizations in order to inform them of their failures of security.
"Poly Network does not intend to make Mr White Hat legally responsible for his actions and cordially invites him to become our headache security adviser. A $ 500,000 reward is on track. We have no objection to what Mr White Hat do with The reward, "the company has assured from your Twitter account.
A payment that has occurred before the hacker returns the whole amount to the company that stole. However, Poly Network explains this atypical behavior ensuring that they "trust that MR White Hat quickly returns the control of assets to Poly Network and its users".Date Of Update: 05 September 2021, 08:14
