Hey there,

We're working with our GateHub colleagues very closely, doing our best on keeping the stolen money intact. We will keep you updated on the situation!

Can you confirm how much XRP has been isolated? As reports to date indicate it is less than 2% of the total amount lost?

I want justice to be served for me, but in this case people also need to know what really happened.

I am taking full technical responsability for the Gatehub Hack, and will defend myself the best way I can in court of law. I don't need to introduce myself. I have never been that so far.

Note that I'll strongly argue I have been manipulated doing a string of hacks for money, including gatehub, and it willnever explain or excuse the actions. But I hope it will be noted that I want to face justice, but I just can't accept other people taking all the profit ( my accomplice from my country took twice than me), and Omniking / AmIEdgyEnough, on my back, took the rest, just by manipluating and blackmailing me.

More people are involved. The attack was done by me and I'm fully aware of what I did, everything was planned, and oncxe again nothing should be excused. I could say a million times I'm sorry for the whole hacking problems, but I'm not and the best I can do now is to accept justice and face it. Only if others people involved, much more believe me, mischievous than me, because I'm choosing a worthy end, than me, will do.

 

All I can say now to the victims, to Enej, is "sorry". Gatehub is I believe at fault for not having a good enough opsec but they faced the music more than you think. All the victims will be refunded, court will decide. And I really hope not only me but the people really involved will face her as well. No need for them to be smarter, because without my technical skills gatehub would have been spared.

I'm once again so sorry, Enej knowsd I tried to escape identification & planned a plan to avoid being caught. I planned the hack and was made evil?. But I'll explain the whole story, how I see things in a court of law and fight for real justice to be served.

Gatehub has its user database from 2017 stolen from an AWS S3 backup and I used the tokens to dump the API keys & decrypt them with AES. I needed the secret key which is the bcrypted password. Someone stated it earlier & he was right.

A million times sorry, my actions will make peace to the whole world and the emoragy will be ended.

Some might think this follow-up is not necessary. Once again, my responsability, involvment will be accepted and I will face what I think, I should face, and will explain more about the story. It is not unbelievable because of the technical skills required to hack gatehub, it was unbelievable because I know well the UK is taking the law seriously, and oppened numerous cases there related to the GateHub theft. After more than five month, the investigators still didn't arrest the person who took off the most off the 12 million USD (approximately, I stole much less in fact, they finished the work, the "ruthless part" is their work. My ruthless part is that I've sold my soul to the devil for too long, whether it is good to be sorry now is too late).

But believe it or not, I will keep most of the money from GateHub I still have ( 2 million$), and they'll be sent back to their rightful belongers when time will come. My accomplice living in my country got 4 million from the GateHub theft ad I hope he will have to face justice, that's why I am taking action now.

I am in no way asking pardon, I will do my best to fight ever again, to indeed proove how sorry I am, and I hope my acknowledgements there will speed-up the whole process of justice towards all of you guys.

(I am really sure it is helpful given how the UK reacted, nothing to say)

It is hard to believe & to buy for now. I planned the attacks and did some bad things. I bought cars. I got profits, and now saying that, I'm sorry, I have been manipulated, will be hard to be bought. I will nonetheless fight for it to be accepted by court, by surrendering myself I did I believe, the right thing.

I just think its a cop-out from @gatehub, I'll be surprised if this turns out to be true

If so than probably their xrpchat account has to be hacked as they've been using it in less suspicious times (since 2015)

I don't think the xrpchat acct has been hacked, I just think that some random user comes on and confesses and gatehub responds quickly, just sounds to convenient for gatehub.  Don't get me wrong, I hope to god that everyone that has been affected by this hack gets repaid and the thieves get caught.

A hacker with the moniker Gnosticplayers was involved in high profile database dumps such as the Zynga hack. Basic OSINT brings very interesting results. If this is the real Gnosticplayers, then we could be looking at some interesting developments. Law enforcement should definitely check this out.
