Hosting company describes security scare aimed at Bitcoin accounts

Jeremy Kirk | March 27, 2014
On Sunday morning, Nate Daiger, one of the owners of a small Los Angeles-based hosting company Chunk Host, received an odd email on his phone.

"It was pretty clear that somebody was intercepting our password reset emails," Daiger said. "I also didn't know it was possible with SendGrid to silently BCC all your outgoing emails elsewhere. I would have been a little more wary about using it if I had known that was a feature."

The attackers were foiled, however. Both of Chunk Host's customers used two-factor authentication, which requires the input of a one-time password to get access to their accounts.
