CoinDash, the cryptocurrency social trading and portfolio management platform, has revealed some positive news for all those affected by its $7 miilion ICO website hack back in July. The cyber criminal behind the attack has sent back 10,000 ETH, worth about $3 million at an Ethereum price level of $300.
The team also announced that they have notified the Israeli Counter Cyber Crime Unit, Lahav 443, about this latest development and that the investigation efforts will increase. They specify that the hacker’s Ethereum address will continue to be tracked and monitored for any suspicious activity.

This means that if the hacker hoped that he can get away with the rest of the stolen ETH, by sending some back to the company, the plan has backfired.
Alon Muroch, CEO and co-founder of CoinDash, commented to Finance Magnates: “We’ve been working close with the counter cyber terror police force. This might had some effect on what happened and hopefully will prevent future cases.”
Lahav 443 is a national level crime-fighting organization of the Israel Police, equivalent to the American FBI.
