It should be noted that the information relating to the hacking of the account was provided a little earlier by PeckShieldAlert. However, no reports of user funds being hacked have surfaced so far. The fears are justified, as in recent days the global digital asset industry has suffered successive hacks and thefts.
This week, aside from The Sandbox, the crypto gaming company, other projects have had their security compromised by hackers. This is the case of Solana whose users were victims of a massive hack between Wednesday and Thursday. About $8 million was lost due to the compromise of 8,000 virtual wallets.
The flaw comes from the Slope online wallet and the latter ensures that internal investigations and audits are underway. Hackers also recently attacked the Nomad protocol and took away around $190 million through 41 addresses. Note also the theft of $3.6 million in funds (2224 ETH) from the ZB cryptocurrency exchange.
Even if the blockchains are not compromised and most hacks are rather due to the personal failures of the users, the current insecurity can slow down the investments of savers in the industry.
