“If your money has been stolen, the app you download or update may be an unknown version (unofficial version) that has been hacked.”
As the hack continued, the BitKeep team encouraged its users to transfer their funds to a wallet from official sources such as Google Play and Apple’s App Store. Apart from this, the team also asked community members to use new wallet addresses. Because their previous addresses could already be “leaked to hackers”.
