Coindash: Hacked for 43k Ethereum

Coindash: Hacked for 43k Ethereum
As written in a previous article about InsureX’s ICO being hacked, the ordeal has resurfaced in a more bigger heist.
What Happened
CoinDash’s Token ICO page was tampered and the Ethereum sending address was changed, very similar to what happened to InsureX last week.

In a direct quote from the CoinDash team:

“This is an emergency message delivered to you in order to stop you from sending your money to an unauthorized ETH address.
It seems like our Token Sale page was tampered and the sending address was changed. Please stop from sending your funds to any of the addresses until we say otherwise.
We are currently examining the situation and will shortly send further instructions.”

The Damage

Amount Stolen: 43,000 ETH Stolen (~ $7.4 Million)
People Affected: ~ 2,130

The Concern
As stated in my previous article about another ICO’s site being hacked. I am truly beginning to become concerned with the current format of how ICOs are being conducted. There needs to be a true reform and standard created for this growing industry that will help keep their investors safe.
I am, by no means, proposing some formal regulatory group to oversee this space, but a general consensus and standard created by the people. – the way the ERC20 token standard was formed.
A safe, secure and standardized way of conducting an ICO because in the long run it will help with confidence in this new thriving investment space.
