Hackers Leaked Source Code for El Salvador Chivo ATMs

El Salvador Chivo Wallet

More and more damaging information starts to come out regarding the state Bitcoin wallet in El Salvador, Chivo, and the wallet story is turning into a shambles. Some members of the hacker collective CiberInteligenciaSV posted part of the source code in the black-hat hacking criminal forum breachForums on April 23.

“Just to note, the Bitcoin Chivo Wallet ATMs in El Salvador are government-issued wallets that you should be aware of. Just so you know, we don’t sell anything; in fact, everything is published for free,” the hacker group inscribed.

This is part of a series of events that are a reflection of the Chivo breach, the latest of which was the early April leak of the personal information of 5.1 million Salvadorans. This figure represents almost all the adults in the country. On April 22, the local cybersecurity project VenariX announced the forthcoming revelation in X on CiberInteligenciaSV’s Telegram channel that the source code would be distributed.

According to a group Telegram post, CiberInteligenciaSV will, as usual, disclose tonight, for free, part of the Chivo Wallet source code and VPN access as long as any government official wants to talk Furthermore, CiberInteligenciaSV posted a file named Codigo.rar, which is a package of codes and VPN credentials from Moreno’s Chivo Wallet ATM network.

The government promoted Chivo as the Bitcoin wallet for residents following El Salvador’s decision in September 2021 to become the first country in the world to recognize Bitcoin as legal tender. The users can also store and withdraw from ATMs, buy and sell Bitcoin, and more on the site. But later, users complained about a lot of bugs and technical problems in the Chivo wallet, and the launch turned out to be a disaster.
