All funds are safe. Poloniex does use cold wallets.

What happened was an attacker used social engineering to gain root access to a wallet server. This was made possible by absolutely jaw-dropping negligence on the part of the hosting provider. Fortunately, I caught the attempt in time and was able to shut down the server before anything was taken. All BTC has been moved into cold storage, and then next step is to set up a new server with a different provider.

Please stop sending BTC to your old BTC deposit addresses. The funds will not be lost, but all new addresses must be generated, as I must assume the old wallet is compromised. It is very unlikely that it was, but "unlikely" is not good enough.

I appreciate everyone's patience while I take proper security measures before bringing the exchange back online.

Way to go buddy, Thank you. Lodge a major complaint with that provider  Kiss

Poloniex - simply the best. Been using Bittrex since you guys down, but it seems bot infested lately, driving me crazy...
Hope to see you up and running soon.

Does this accident affect other, not-BTC deposit addresses? My rigs send regulary small amounts of coins directly to my poloniex deposits, do I need to stop sending now?
I guess that depends on how safe you feel with unlikely. Going by what he said, you should be good but it's best play it safe and stop using all old poloniex coin address as I would assume the wallets were all on the same wallet server (could be wrong).

Yes you should absolutely stop sending small deposits from mining. If every one of those deposits needs to be manually recovered for you then you will only be wasting time. I can't recall if Poloniex specifically has a statement listed in the balance page, but many exchanges have something along the lines of "Please don't send small auto-payouts from mining." So basically you should never be doing it to begin with.

I would advise you to stop sending deposits. Not all wallets were on that server, and the odds are very very tiny that the attacker was after lesser-known alts, but it could only make things easier if you wait until the site is back up before sending more deposits.

Another breach happening so soon from the last one... this is fucked up.

What makes it worse is all the bitches who keep thanking them, can you morons at least wait until their statements are backed up by actions, such as the site coming back with your funds in tact.
