My hashnest account just got hacked and robbed. however i had a uniq password on the account not used anywhere else and the trading pin should have prevented this too…
The loss on my side isn't huge, however following the money i notice the hacker made quite a big hit. 133.7129887 btc to the first wallet, and following it even further, the bitcoin go to an account that had over 20,414.51496295 BTC collected in a year..
The ip addresses listed in the security tab of hashnest are the following
126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 Ukraine; Kharkivs'ka Oblast'; Kharkiv 06-18 18:44:57
184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11 Russian Federation; Kaluga; Kaluga 06-18 18:19:13
18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124 Ukraine; Kharkivs'ka Oblast'; Kharkiv 06-18 06:48:09
126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 Czech Republic; -; – 06-18 06:46:38
EDIT: I'm not sure how bitmain handles XFF requests, however it appears 184.108.40.206 might be the XFF origin set by some VPN providers.

As I mentioned I had a uniq password for hashnest so it makes me fear bitmain might have a security breach. The thought of malware has also crossed my mind, however i havent logged in to hashnest for over about a year so than I would have expected it to happen earlier.
Hope this message is a heads up for those who still have BTC on their hashnest accounts Always change your passwords regularly and never keep your BTC at external parties.
