Binance was massively hacked a few hours ago. Hackers stole 7,000 Bitcoin (BTC) from Binance. The stock market is the largest Bitcoin and Crypto Exchange in the world in terms of trading volume. It is one of the most trusted and secure exchanges in Crypto Space. Nobody expected such a massive attack after such a long series of successes by Binance and BNB. Following the announcement, the Bitcoin price has fallen by approximately 3% and the Binance Coin (BNB) price has fallen more than 10%.
Binance noticed the hackers before the Bitcoin transaction
Binance announced on May 7 that a “major security leak” was discovered. Hackers were able to access user API keys, two-factor authentication codes, and potentially other information. As a result, they were able to transfer around $ 41 million to Bitcoin from the stock market. The entire amount of 7,000 BTC was withdrawn with a single transaction: https://www.blockchain.com/btc/tx/e8b406091959700dbffcff30a60b190133721e5c39e89bb5fe23c5a554ab05ea
This is the only known transaction…
