FixedFloat exchange hacked!
« on: February 19, 2024, 11:58:15 PM »
FixedFloat exchange was hacked on February 18 and they lost Bitcoin and Ethereum worth around $26 million!
They confirmed this incident on twitter and they shut down their swap service until further notice.
Keeping this amount of money on hot wallets is crazy for any service.  :P

Fixedfloat.com's active so their swap service's restored. There's a case on bitcointalk but it's 1 case so their customers didn't report getting scammed so they didn't have a bad rep before the hack. Who's saying it's an inside job because storing $26M in hot wallets connected to swappers isn't regular strategy. It doesn't look like a real hack so who's got the money.

FixedFloat going to move to the new domain, https://ff.io/
As they say, this makes it harder for scammers to create phishing sites similar to their names.

Both domains are currently working.

Did anyone test if fixedfloat exchange is really back and working after that big hack?  :o
I see they have listed bitcoin, ethereum, litecoin and many other coins, only few of them are greyed out and not available.

It could've happened when you visited because they had restrictions. I didn't see greyed out options today they're working with usual crypto so they could grey out each time they're low on available funds.

Did anyone test if fixedfloat exchange is really back and working after that big hack?  :o

There were 30 orders affected by the hack and the total amount of those 30 orders doesnt seem to be much.
Fixedfloat is a non-custodial exchange, so its actually their own assets that are lost, not the users.
Maybe this is retaliation from the Lazarus group, their funds worth $2M were frozen by Fixedfloat last year.

Since they are back to business, it means that it was their funds that was lost, and not customers funds. This will put more trust on the exchange by their customers that whatever happens to the exchange that their funds are safe. If not they would have not been able to start operation if they were really affected by the hack. This is the main reason why one should always save funds in a private wallet, because exchanges are vulnerable to attack.

It seems like you don't understand well how FixedFloat exchange works. It is an instant exchanger and it differs from the usual centralized exchanges.
Here, users do not keep their coins in the exchange wallet, only the moment of the trade itself is risky until the transactions are confirmed. For example, a user sends 0.5 Bitcoin, and after one or two confirmations that BTC has been sent, he receives USDT (or some other currency) to his address. (I mentioned BTC and USDT only as an example)

they were certainly affected by this hack because 50% of their capital was stolen (if I remember the percentage correctly). However, they have enough money in reserve, which allows them to continue their business.

For example, a user sends 0.5 Bitcoin, and after one or two confirmations that BTC has been sent, he receives USDT (or some other currency) to his address. (I mentioned BTC and USDT only as an example)

Ideally, the amount that was hacked is supposed to be the amount of deposits at that hour, and this amount is not supposed to be millions of dollars, but it seems that the hackers were able to access the private key of the API or their hot storage and emptied their wallets, whether they were in third-party services such as Binance, OKX or were in their wallets.

I have not even seen complaints from their users that they have run out of funds. It seems that most of the stolen money belonged to the exchanger.

It was terrible security issue to store so much coins in hot wallets, but I don't fully understand how this quick swap exchanges actually work.
Best alternative for FixedFload that really respects customer privacy, and have higher security standards is eXch exchange.
Owner or main team member is a cool guy and he often expresses himself in bitcointalk forum, I think they even have account in AltcoinsTalk forum.

FixedFloat exchange was hacked on February 18 and they lost Bitcoin and Ethereum worth around $26 million!
They confirmed this incident on twitter and they shut down their swap service until further notice.
Keeping this amount of money on hot wallets is crazy for any service.  :P

what else happened this time, for a long time I saw that hacking had become a habit of an exchange when their liquidity had started to thicken

what you said is true, it is safer to trade on a large DEX or CEX that has a good reputation

FixedFloat hack happened again on April 1 and this is not a joke  :P
It happened by the same people and they lost money again.

Quote
On April 1, we were again attacked by the attackers who were behind the February 16 hack. The attackers did not stop there and continued to use various methods to try to hack our service again. Thanks to the enormous work done to improve the security of our infrastructure, we were able to successfully repel their attacks and continue to work.

However, despite all our efforts, unfortunately, hackers managed to discover a vulnerability of a third party whose services we use. Although such third-party attacks are beyond our control, we take all necessary measures to strengthen the security of our service and will work to prevent similar incidents in the future.

We would like to emphasize that financial losses affected only our service; hackers stole funds to ensure the liquidity of the service, that is, the company’s funds and user funds were not affected. We also want to emphasize that FixedFloat does not perform the functions of a custodial service, that is, it does not store user funds.

We are currently in the process of an active investigation. Details of the incident cannot yet be disclosed due to the ongoing investigation.

No it's not safer to do that on any centralized exchanges.
Most of the big centralized exchanges got hacked before and people lost money.
There are no big DEX exchanges, Bisq is the best and safest right now.

Sometimes, I really wonder how possible is it that an exchange is hacked the first time, and then while still discussing on that, they end up getting hacked again the second time in a row, I usually think that the first hacked should have drawn the attention of the security team of that exchange to the vulnerability which gave the hackers unwarranted or unapproved access to the exchange's database, so they can block that access immediately, but what? It looks like sometimes, they are clueless on what to do..

Like I mentioned in a thread posted in the crypto currency discussion board on this same topic, this exactly how cryptopia went down after being hacked three times consecutively.
I hope people stay away from this exchange going forward, never knew such exchange even existed.. Lol  ;D
