Hackers steal cryptocurrency worth 58 bil. yen   

The Financial Services Agency (FSA) on Jan. 29 issued a business improvement order to Japanese cryptocurrency exchange giant Coincheck Inc. after NEM currency worth 58 billion yen held by its customers was lost to what sources said was hacking from overseas.

The FSA issued the order to the Tokyo-based company under the Payment Services Act for its failure to implement safety management systems to prevent the hacking.

The perpetrators apparently hacked into the system on Jan. 26 and made off with the NEM currency. According to sources, the hacking was carried out via multiple servers overseas.

Virtual currency exchanges normally manage the cryptocurrency held by their customers by isolating it from outside networks to prevent illegal access from external sources. However, Coincheck had kept the lost cryptocurrency connected to outside networks.

Coincheck announced on Jan. 28 that it will compensate all of its 260,000 account holders in Japanese yen, but has not revealed the details of its plan.

The NEM Foundation, an international organization promoting the use of NEM, announced that it is tracking down the lost cryptocurrency through tagging.
