Following an attack that brought trading at Polish exchange to a grinding halt late last week comes the news that the exchange has resumed service as of a couple of hours ago (noontime, Polish time) for clients trading with the Polish Zloty.
For clients trading with the Euro, trading shall be resumed on the 20th of March, this Thursday, also at noontime, according to Bitcurex.
User passwords have been reset, and the exchange is asking clients to use the “password reminder” function to obtain their login credentials. Deposit addresses have also been changed, and the exchange is warning clients to pay close attention to which address they are depositing to.
Bitcurex also makes note of the fact that bid and ask orders before the attack have been canceled, as have fiat withdrawal requests. These will need to be resubmitted by the end user.
Finally, the exchange has changed the address from which notifications will now come from to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We would also like to inform, that today we have submitted a formal notification to relevant institutions regarding committed crime,” the company wrote on their website.
When we last spoke to Bitcurex, we were informed that a “manageable” amount of bitcoin was stolen from the service’s hot wallet in the attack (possibly even their own money), but insisted that cold wallet funds were safe.
An external audit to verify funds is underway.
