Zniknięcie 30 mln Tetherów (USDT)

Zespół Tether opublikował na swoim Twitterze oficjalne oświadczenie o kradzieży 30 mln Tetherów (USDT). Według oświadczenia środki zostały usunięte z portfela Tether i przesłane na nieautoryzowany adres Bitcoin.

Sytuacja wydaje się być nieco podejrzana ze względu na niejasności wokół samej waluty Tether. Wątpliwości budzi brak audytu na Tetherze co może oznaczać, że waluta nie ma pokrycia w dolarach.

Dodatkowo niejasne są powiązania Tethera z giełdą Bitfinex, która sama nie ma na swojej platformie fiatów od momentu kiedy została okradziona na 72 mln dolarów. Wtedy zamiast dolarów wprowadzono tokeny USDT.

Zespół Tether wprowadził aktualizację oprogramowania mającą zapobiec wydaniu ukradzionych środków.

Oświadczenie zespołu Tether:

Tether Critical Announcement

Yesterday, we discovered that funds were improperly removed from the Tether treasury wallet through malicious action by an external attacker. Tether integrators must take immediate action, as discussed below, to prevent further ecosystem disruption.

$30,950,010 USDT was removed from the Tether Treasury wallet on November 19, 2017 and sent to an unauthorized bitcoin address. As Tether is the issuer of the USDT managed asset, we will not redeem any of the stolen tokens, and we are in the process of attempting token recovery to prevent them from entering the broader ecosystem. The attacker is holding funds in the following address: 16tg2RJuEPtZooy18Wxn2me2RhUdC94N7r. If you receive any USDT tokens from the above address, or from any downstream address that receives these tokens, do not accept them, as they have been flagged and will not be redeemable by Tether for USD.

The following steps have been taken to address this matter:

  1. The back-end wallet service has been temporarily suspended. A thorough investigation on the cause of the attack is being undertaken to prevent similar actions in the future.
  2. We are providing new builds of Omni Core to the community. (Omni Core is the software used by Tether integrators to support Omni Layer transactions.) These builds should prevent any movement of the stolen coins from the attacker’s address. We strongly urge all Tether integrators to install this software immediately to prevent the coins from entering the ecosystem. Again, any tokens from the attacker’s address will not be redeemed. Accordingly, any and all exchanges, wallets, and other Tether integrators should install this software immediately in order to prevent that this software will cause a consensus change to currently running Omni Core clients, meaning that it is effectively a temporary hard fork to the Omni Layer. Integrators running this build will not accept any token sends from the attacker’s address, preventing the coins from moving further from the attacker’s address.
  3. We are working with the Omni Foundation to investigate ways that will allow Tether to reclaim stranded tokens and rectify the hard fork created by the above software. Once this protocol enhancement is complete, the Omni Foundation will provide updated binaries for all integrators to install. These builds will supersede the binaries provided above by After the protocol upgrades to the Omni Layer are in place, Tether will reclaim the stolen tokens and return them to treasury.

Tether issuances have not been affected by this attack, and all Tether tokens remain fully backed by assets in the Tether reserve. The only tokens that will not be redeemed are the ones that were stolen from Tether treasury yesterday. Those tokens will be returned to treasury once the Omni Layer protocol enhancements are in place. 

We will provide further updates as they come available, and we appreciate the community’s patience, understanding, and support while we work to rectify the situation in the best possible manner to everyone’s benefit.
