The number of attacks was about 120,000 on October 19 (probably because the hacking software was finished halfway through the day), 260,000 on October 20, and similar numbers on October 21. On October 22, "prevent Tor access" was enabled and cut the number of attacks.

But on October 18, there were just 327 attacks. The criminals must have bought the database from the thieves, and then rushed to write software to use this database before their Tor access was going to be cut off by the new release.

The reason there were so many people who got money stolen is obviously because they used the same password in their Bitmain accounts as they did here. This is extremely frustrating. I don't know how many times I can repeat that there are no circumstances where you should ever use the same password as you do on another site.
I saw that. Seriously... if it involves money, USE A UNIQUE PASSWORD. Ugh, some people I swear...
