NiceHash, a Bitcoin mining market and exchange company, reported it was a victim of a data breach and planned to suspend operations for 24 hours.
A cybercriminal may have made off with over $63M worth of Bitcoin.
As the company wrote on Wednesday, “our payment system was compromised and the contents of the NiceHash Bitcoin wallet have been stolen. We are working to verify the precise number of BTC taken.”
NiceHash is urgently working with law enforcement and appropriate authorities to investigate the breach. The company is also recommending users change their online passwords.
