A DNS hijack has led to hackers withdrawing $400,000 worth of Stellar Lumen (XLM) coins from wallets hosted by Blackwallet.co without users’ permission. As multiple sources report, on Saturday, Jan. 13, attackers took control of BlackWallet’s hosting server, changing settings to allow code to run which automatically sent customer balances over 20XLM to an address under the hackers’ control. Almost 670,000 tokens are currently missing as a result of the attack, likely explaining XLM’s almost 23 percent dive over the past 48 hours.
