Cryptocurrency exchange Bithumb announced that 13 Million in EOS was stolen. The South Korean company suspects it's an insider job.
"All the [stolen] cryptocurrency is owned by the company, and all members’ assets are under the protection of a cold wallet."
Coindesk has an eloborate article on what happened. Since there is lack of evidence of an external exploit, the company assumes it's an employee who stole the 3 Million EOS, worth $13 Million.
