In a recent tweet from Bancor, they claimed a security breach in their system. The details on the breach are still being investigated. 
First, they tweeted that their Web App is down, and then came the security breach tweet. 
“To complete the investigation, we have moved to maintenance and will be releasing a more detailed report shortly. We look forward to being back online as soon as possible” said their spokesperson. 
They were able to block the transfer of around 2.5 million BNT tokens(worth around $10 million), but weren’t able to do so with 25k ETH tokens(~$12.5 million) as well as 230 million NPXS tokens (worth around $1 million). Once the theft was identified, they were able to freeze the stolen BNT. So to sum it all up, they lost around $13,5 million. 
“We expect Bancor to go back online in the next 24 hours. We will continue to post updates as and when appropriate on our Telegram channel and on Twitter” said their head of communications Nate Hindman. 
Bancor emphasized the fact that no user wallets were compromised in the attack. 
Bancor is a decentralized liquidity network that allows you to hold any token and convert it to any other token in the network, with no counter party, at an automatically calculated price, using a simple web wallet.
