CoinEx to Give Bug Bounty to Attackers
As it works to rebuild the confidence of its user base, CoinEx is still dedicated to the restoration of full services and the bolstering of its security infrastructure. Approximately $70 million in funds were stolen as a result of the most recent security breach, which North Korean hackers are to blame for. The exchange assured its consumers that the cash that was stolen only made up a small portion of its overall holdings.
The incident was recognized by CoinEx as a crucial lesson in bolstering asset security in an open letter that was published on September 15. The exchange sent out an invitation to the hackers, promising a sizable bug bounty in return for the recovery of assets that had been taken, as well as expressing a desire to work with them on further security updates.
