An anonymous reader writes: A hacker going online by the pseudonym of "aabbccddeefg" has exploited a vulnerability to steal over 44,400 EOS coins ($220,000) from a blockchain-based betting app. The hack targeted a blockchain app that lets users bet with EOS coins in a classic dice game. The entire incident is quite hilarious because four days before it happened, the company behind the app was boasting on Twitter that every other dice betting game had been hacked and lost funds. "DEOS Games, a clone and competitor of our dice game, has suffered a severe hack today that drained their bankroll," the company said in a now deleted tweet. "As of now every single dice game and clone site has been hacked. We have the biggest bankroll, the best developers, and a superior UI. Play on." While the hack is somewhat the definition of karma police, it is also quite funny because the hacker himself didn"t really care about hiding his tracks or laundering the stolen funds. "So this guy hacks EOSBET and what does he do? Play space invaders. I"m not even kidding...," a user analyzing the hacker"s account said.
