Two Israeli brothers arrested for phishing fraud, Bitfinex hack

Israeli Police’s cyber unit arrested two brothers, Eli and Assaf Gigi, for allegedly perpetrating a multi-year phishing scheme and participating in a 2016 hack of Bitfinex. The two allegedly stole over $100 million in cryptocurrency. The infamous Bitfinex theft of 119,756 BTC shocked the crypto market with the largest loss of bitcoins by an exchange since the Mt. Gox breach in early 2014.
