FTX Reportedly Got Hacked

This last week has been full of news about FTX and its CEO, Sam Bankman-Fried, filing for bankruptcy.

Following this news, the latest report is that FTX is allegedly being hacked, with over $600 million taken from a number of FTX-linked wallets.

“FTX has been hacked. FTX apps are malware. Delete them. Chat is open. Don’t go on FTX site as it might download Trojans,” says a post by an account administrator in FTX’s Telegram channel.

Ryne Miller, FTX General Counsel, has pinned the message after a tweet today that he was “investigating abnormalities with wallet movements related to consolidation on FTX balances across exchanges.”

On-chain researchers estimate that withdrawals made using tokens, including ETH, SOL, BNB, LINK, AVAX, and MATIC, total about $600 million. 

A number of FTX users have reported on Twitter seeing a balance of $0 in their FTX.com and FTX US wallets.

Due to a severe financial crisis, Bankman-Fried resigned from FTX’s CEO early on Saturday morning. 

Alameda Research, a trading company, run by Sam Bankman-Fried, has also declared bankruptcy.
