Stop us if you've heard this one before, but the day after it went down for mysterious reasons, crypto-currency wrangling site Dogevault.com has confirmed someone stole its kibble.
“On the 11th of May, the Doge Vault online wallet service was compromised by attackers, resulting in a service disruption and tampering with wallet funds,” the now-sparse site says at the time of writing.
“As soon as the administrator of Doge Vault was alerted, the service was halted,” the author continues. “The attackers had already accessed and destroyed all data on the hosted virtual machines.”
The outfit is “in the process of identifying the extent of the attack and potential impact on user's funds.”
Not sure I would use an online wallet service, or really know what one really is used for...but just goes to show that if you have or handle data in any form...you need to make sure that you take sensible precautions.
