On the platform available trade operations with DENT, BBC, and ETH due to the full recovery of assets. However, users can’t trade 7 cryptocurrency (bitcoin, KNC, STORM, TRX, NPXS, ATX, NPER), as its recovery continues.
The exchange team announced that a new security system at the site is consistent with the recommendations of the Korean Agency for Internet and security (KISA), is investigating hacking Coinrail.
“We converted the existing security system, which contained the vulnerability, and restored the entire security level”, — said in a company blog.
However, as hackers managed to steal $37 million, remains a mystery.
“KISA is at the stage of completion of the investigation. Received information still needs to perform, therefore, the details of the incident cannot be disclosed,” — the newspaper writes Sedaily with reference to the representative of the regulator.
Note, after hacking Coinrail presented a plan for the restoration of the platform and two versions of the return of stolen funds, criticized by kriptosmartfon.
The first method involves buying cryptocurrency exchange due to operations at the site and the gradual transfer them to a users account.
In the second embodiment, the exchange has proposed to list the users with the token RAIL and exchange it at the rate of 1 RAIL = 0,72 KRW. However, after Coinrail resumed trading, the price of RAIL fell by 72.2% (0.2 KRW) in half a day.
Earlier ForkLog wrote that since 2011, the losses of investors as a result of break-ins and other attacks on cryptocurrency exchanges amounted to $2.3 billion.
