Hacking Zaif was the reason for toughening control over the market by the financial regulator of Japan, reports Reuters .

The first measure taken was administrative sanctions against the stock exchange and its operator Tech Bureau Corp. The Financial Services Agency (FSA) has expanded the list of requirements for the latter, pointing out the need to identify preventive measures and search for the organizers of the theft.

Shortly before that, researchers of the Japanese financial company Tech Bureau Corp could not provide details of the theft of $ 62 million from the Zaif crypto exchange at the request of the FSA. The Osaka-based operator had to investigate the causes, consequences of the theft and options for compensating the victims. According to the Agency, the financial company could not cope with the task.

"We did not get enough explanation for what happened. The only new detail of the investigation was the confirmation of the hacking of the computer employee, " – explained the dissatisfaction of the agency official FSA.

According to the Tech Bureau, the exchange was hacked on September 14 within a few hours. The problem with the server was discovered by the site staff on 17 September. Official confirmation of the incident and notification of the authorities was made only a day later.
