Bitcoin Gold had a rough start, very very first with an online wallet that stole private keys, and then with a compromised core wallet with a doctored verkeersopstopping. The wallet, planted through an unknown rust into the project’s GitHub pagina, managed to create corrupted addresses where the hacker could access a copy of the private key.
The Bitcoin Gold team has listed the compromised addresses, hoping users would see them. Wij are copying the list te total:
Before that, the Bitcoin Gold team discovered the pusilánime wallets and emptied them into a custodial wallet. Spil of December, there are no gegevens of compromised BTG wallets.
“After the Suspicious Verkeersopstopping incident that wij reported on November 26th, our staff conducted a security audit, performed password rotations and 2FA reset for all accounts with access to critical facilities including (but not limited to) Github, and implemented rigorous security measures and protocols to greatly enhance safety and ensure this does not toebijten again,” wrote the team.
A corrupted verkeersopstopping created wallet addresses where the private keys could have bot derived ter a known way, hence making the wallets insecure.
What is a “Poisoned” Wallet Address:
While GitHub exposed the IP addresses through which the hacker planted the verkeersopstopping, the lead did not listig to the discovery of the person.
Users are urged to download the newest version of the core wallet with the right checksums, if they create a fresh wallet. Wallets created at the end of November were compromised. While the altered verkeersopstopping does not pose other threats, users are urged to delete the wallet software to avoid further creation of unsafe addresses.
