Poloniex, hacked!

Reports suggest that Poloniex, a cryptocurrency exchange founded by Tron’s Justin Sun, has fallen victim to a hacking incident worth over $100 million.

The hack was identified by crypto security firms PeckShield and Cyvers, who alerted the exchange at approximately 10:55 UTC.

Following this, the exchange’s customer service arm posted on X (formerly known as Twitter), stating that the wallet has been disabled for maintenance.

The platform mentioned that it would keep the community informed as soon as the wallet is back online. However, no updates have been received from the exchange since then.

The customer service team of the firm announced on X (previously known as Twitter) that their wallet is currently disabled for maintenance.

The platform assured the community that they would be informed once the wallet is back online. However, there has been no update from the exchange regarding the wallet’s status since then.

It is unclear how a vulnerability was discovered and exploited. We may receive updates on the methods used by the hacker to gain access to the hot wallet in the future, they say.

However, it is common to see cryptocurrency exchanges being hacked.

For instance, earlier this year, HTX was hacked for $8 million worth of ETH. Similarly, in April, the South Korean exchange Gdac lost $13 million to an attack. Additionally, last November, Deribit was hacked for $28 million.
