压死ICO的最后一根稻草?CoinDash项目遭窃700多万美元

一家鲜为人知的创业公司所进行的ICO项目CoinDash,昨日突然停止了,原因是该项目在ICO开始之后不久就遭受了黑客攻击。

一位未知身份的黑客通过将原本用于接收投资者资金的ETH更改成一个假冒的ETH地址从而盗取了该项目所筹集的资金,共计损失753万美元。

截至发稿时,CoinDash网站已经关闭,该项目正在请求受到影响的投资者向他们提供的链接提交信息,从而了解这些投资者在这次ICO中原本应该获得的CoinDash代币(CDT)数量。

该公司的声明表示:

“那些向假冒ETH地址(被恶意地放在我们的网站上的)以及向CoinDash.io官方ETH地址发送ETH的ICO参与者都将获得相应的CDT代币。”

值得注意的是,由于该项目目前仍旧在遭受攻击,这次代币出售已经终止。

在一份声明中,CoinDash敦促投资者不要再往任何地址发送ETH,因为“在网站关闭后仍旧向假冒地址发送ETH的交易都将不会获得CoinDash的补偿。”

这次ICO被攻击让人回想起了去年,一个叫做The DAO的项目被以相似的方式盗取了5000万美元。因此,这次事件可能会再次引起人们关注正在流行的ICO融资模式的安全性。

An initial coin offering (ICO) for a little-know startup project called CoinDash was abruptly halted today when it was revealed the sale had been compromised shortly after it began.

In total, the ICO was able to raise $7.53m before the ethereum address it was using to solicit funds was altered to a fake one by an unidentified hacker, resulting in the ether going to another source.

At the time of publication, the CoinDash website has been shut down, and the project is asking investors who have been affected to submit information to the provided link to collect the CoinDash token (CDT) they should be rewarded through the sale.

The company's statement reads:

"Contributors that sent ETH to the fraudulent Ethereum address, which was maliciously placed on our website, and sent ETH to the CoinDash.io official address will receive their CDT tokens accordingly."

Notably, as the project is still under attack, and the sale has been terminated.

In a statement, CoinDash urged investors not to send any ether to any address, since "transactions sent to any fraudulent address after the website was shut down will not be compensated."

The hacking of this ICO is reminiscent of last year when $50m was stolen in a similar fashion from a project called The DAO. As such, the event will likely again draw attention to possible security issues in ICO funding, amid their escalating popularity.
