Crypto YouTuber Hacked out of $2 Million During a Livestream (Breaches and Incidents)

Another day, another heist: Ian Balina, a cryptocurrency YouTuber known for his (sponsored) ICO reviews, was apparently hacked out of $2 million during a livestream session. Balina was reviewing ICOs on his channel as usual, when a viewer suddenly notified him that “someone” had moved all tokens out of his wallet. Balina later took to his own Telegram channel to reveal that he was forced to end the livestream abruptly because he got hacked. $ETH $BTC — Ian Balina (@DiaryofaMadeMan) April 16, 2018 Balina is a known name in the ICO industry — especially as an influencer to casual investors. Balina believes the attackers were able to access his account via his old college email: I think they hacked my email using my college email, and then hacked my Evernote.
