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.

Don't take life too serious, No one gets out alive Wink

Why did your hosting provider have root access to a server with wallets?  If your hosting provider has super admin you have no security.  An attacker or employee you rob you at will.


this has me worried.

Unable to login web site? why? poloniex

You can't read? Read the fucking thread! You're a full member of BitcoinTalk, didn't realize they handed them out arbitrarily.

I've been with Poloniex since the beginning, as was said earlier in this thread, go for a walk, bang the misses.

If there is one exchange you can trust, it's this one Poloniex / Busoni

Balances are all fine, and deposits will all go through. Even if you send them now they will go through, but they might be delayed.

I have just had word that the OS is being installed on the new server, so I should hopefully have the site and many of the markets up tonight.

They told me on more than one occasion that they could not access any of my servers without the root passwords. Evidently they meant "unless you don't have it."

While something bad here happened again in the crypto world, something great is currently occuring in the Netherlands as guldencoin gets another subways to accept the currency.
