Crypto exchange Coinbase has been having problems with hackers lately. They are constantly adding new cases of robbed clients.

Coinbase and hackers

Following a hacker attack in April this year, one of Coinbase’s clients lost more than $ 11.6 million.

The portal Business Insider came with interesting information. A California district judge has reportedly issued an order to recover more than $ 600,000 in BTC from Huobi Global. According to the investigation file, it is in this wallet that part of the stolen money is located.

“The Huobi Exchange has agreed to maintain a freeze of funds until the confiscation lawsuit is resolved,” said Thom Mrozka, director of media relations at the US Public Prosecutor’s Office in LA.

In this case, the injured party himself received a notification that his account was suspended. It was right after he made the purchase 200 BTC. He was prompted to contact the phone number from the announcement. But he had no idea it was a scam. Suddenly, he found himself in the power of fraudsters, who deftly pushed him into an act that allowed them remote access. According to the court, it is still unclear how the hacker was able to access the individual data.

Coinbase is still silent in this case. This is surprising, as there are more and more cases of attacked and robbed clients. Since 2016, more than 12,000 complaints.
