Unknown Users Withdraw More than $400M from FTX
PeckShield specialists drew on November 12 attention to the fact that unknown users have transferred more than $400 million from FTX accounts to third-party addresses.
According to the company experts, the recipient’s wallet already holds 53,843 ETH and approximately $217 million in other cryptocurrencies.
Another 45.8 million FTT was transferred to a wallet marked “FTX” on Etherscan. PeckShield has also noted its connection with the US division of Binance.
According to The Block, the administrator of the official Telegram channel of FTX has written that the exchange was hacked and all assets were stolen. He later deleted the message, clarifying that “part of the funds” had been stolen.
He has also warned about the FTX mobile app and website being hacked, which could download malware and viruses to users’ devices.
