Crypto Industry News:

General Bytes is one of the three largest producers of crypto ATM in the world. The company announced on August 19 that their devices had been hacked in a zero-day vulnerability. This term denotes a software security bug that has not been identified by the developers. Hackers used it to modify settings for their own benefit. As a result of Thursday's attack on servers supporting the operation of bitomats, criminals carried out an operation to obtain administrator privileges. Then, they changed the address of the wallet of recipients of transactions, so that device users lost access to the flowing funds while buying or selling them.

The manufacturer did not disclose to the public how many devices were affected by the hack and how many funds were stolen. However, the company advised operators to update the software immediately. It was established that the vulnerability has been functioning since Thursday's modification of the CAS software, as a result of which hackers managed to activate its new version with the number 20201208.

General Bytes suggests that customers refrain from using their devices until the server is updated. The company hopes to fix the vulnerabilities and restore old settings with some tweaks. Before reactivating its terminals, General Bytes advised customers to review their "cryptocurrency sales settings" again. This is to make sure that hackers have not tweaked their settings so that the funds being sent go directly to their wallets. GB said several security audits have been carried out since the inception of their systems in 2020. However, never once has a similar vulnerability been discovered.

Technical Market Outlook:

The ETH/USD pair has fell out of the channel and the sell-off accelerates rapidly towards the technical support seen at the level of $1,559. The market conditions on the H4 time frame chart are extremely oversold, however the bearish pressure is still strong and the local bounces are very shallow. The nearest technical resistance is seen at $1,666 and must be clearly violated in order to continue the up move. The key short-term technical support is located at the level of $1,559 and if clearly violated, then the next target for bears is located at $1,358.

Weekly Pivot Points:

WR3 - $1,703

WR2 - $1,649

WR1 - $1,615

Weekly Pivot - $1,595

WS1 - $1,560

WS2 - $1,540

WS3 - $1,485

Trading Outlook:

The down trend on the Ethereum might have been terminated at the level of $880. So far every bounce and attempt to rally is being used to sell Ethereum for a better price by the market participants, so the bearish pressure is still high. The next target for bears is located at the level of $1,358.
