I was hacked. The attacker gained access to several of my accounts (Apple Cloud, Yahoo, Gmail, Telegram), found private keys, mnemonic seeds and drained several thousand dollars worth of crypto.

In this article, I’ll try to recreate the exact timeline of events, the damage, commentary on how this could have happened.

The events took place on Sunday morning, October 4th, 2020. Between 9am and 11am, GMT+8. I was not home, far away from my two MacBooks. They were in hibernate mode, locked, lids closed, at home. The night before, I finished setting up my brand new MacBook Pro (2020). …

Hi there, I’m Raman, founder of Crypto Jobs List. It is the leading blockchain and cryptocurrency job board on the Internet.
