Bitcoin (BTC) Stealing by Bad Actors

To buy a Bitcoin, you need a Bitcoin Wallet.  With a Bitcoin Wallet it will be possible to have the BTC in the pocket always and handy to pay anytime.  Merchants use the QR code to receive payments reliably and instantly.  However, it is very important to choose the right wallet, otherwise it is possible for users to lose money due to errors. 

Sydney Ifergan, the crypto expert tweeted:  “Bitcoin (BTC) are stolen from wallets by different methods by malicious actors.  It helps when victims report their story to educate the rest to stay safe. “

Many times users are able to see comments like the BTC has been sent from the Wallet, but has not been transmitted yet! There can be two answers, one thing can be it is getting processed very slowly and another thing can be that there are bugs in the software.

Reportedly, cybercriminals are stealing funds from wallets by pushing through malware update.  Open ecosystems permit anyone to have gateway servers.  Some bad actors tend to fire up their own gateway servers and wait for the users to connect.  When the users connect, the prompt directs the users to update the app if they need to send a transaction.  When the user updates, it actually leads them to a malware as opposed to a legitimate update.

When it is updated, the compromised wallet asks for the passcode.  When users provide the passcode, the funds are stolen and sent to the attackers address.  Such exploitations are fixed by advanced versions.

Since bad actors are getting very creative, it is important for users to get used to such patterns of hacking and know they exists.  It is also important to stay up to date about how malicious actors exploit the system.
