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

212.86.114.151, 103.218.243.35 Ukraine; Kharkivs'ka Oblast'; Kharkiv 06-18 18:44:57

141.101.132.215, 103.218.243.35 Russian Federation; Kaluga; Kaluga 06-18 18:19:13

212.86.114.151, 103.218.243.35 Ukraine; Kharkivs'ka Oblast'; Kharkiv 06-18 06:48:09

188.68.3.73, 103.218.243.35 Czech Republic; -; – 06-18 06:46:38

EDIT: I'm not sure how bitmain handles XFF requests, however it appears 103.218.243.35 might be the XFF origin set by some VPN providers.

The wallets : 20,414.51496295 BTC 19N1ymPRrnDsiAgaMeRCf288QcwWM1fiR

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.
