On Tuesday, EOS Japan said it was on lockdown after a suspected hacker used an EOS 5K digital currency exchange to make an unauthorized transfer.
The virtual currency, known as “cryptocurrency”, is used in virtual worlds such as The Sims.
The hacker, who is known online as “Sai”, is believed to have obtained a number of bitcoins.
According to a statement on the EOS website, the attacker used an account at a Tokyo-based cryptocurrency exchange.
“We are investigating whether this is a case of fraud, or perhaps the transfer of funds that should not have been made,” the statement said.
“The suspect’s identity is being withheld at this time.”
The EOS exchange has a long history of trading virtual currencies.
The first EOS bitcoin was launched in November of 2013.
“In 2015, Eos launched a new series of virtual currencies called Cryptocurrencies.
Each new series is a unique version of Eos.
In 2017, Eons second series was called the ‘Crypto’ series,” the Eos website said.
EOS said it will keep its doors open to allow people to exchange bitcoin, ethereum, and litecoin for “crypto” currency.
The cryptocurrency exchange is currently on lockdown.
A statement on EOS’ website said that it is investigating the case “with a view to recovering the lost money.”
The statement also said EOS will offer refunds to customers who are unable to exchange the virtual currencies for fiat currencies.
Eos said it has received reports of a number a cyberattacks.
“Although it is too early to speculate on the nature of the incident, the security and integrity of the exchange itself are of utmost importance,” the company said in a statement.
