AToken Wallet Users Reporting Stolen Funds
AToken Wallet users are claiming that their money have been stolen. SlowMist, a blockchain security company, has also stated that the wallet is under attack, asking users to relocate their funds.
According to a tweet made on February 9, the blockchain security firm SlowMist has claimed that AToken has been attacked. The team confirmed that funds were being discreetly transferred to AToken Wallet users, and that this procedure was still ongoing.
On December 20, 2021, the platform official Twitter account released a tweet announcing a cease to operations. The platform urged users to “stop accessing and using AToken” in areas where it does not fulfill compliance criteria by December 24, 2021. It further stated that any damages or risks that happened beyond the deadline would be borne by the user.
SlowMist claims that the AToken staff has not responded to users in the Telegram channel who are talking about the stolen money. Among other safeguards, the security firm advises wallet users to move their funds to a secure wallet.
SlowMist specifically advises users to “do not use wallets that import AToken or use mnemonic words or private keys generated by AToken” and that “retain the installation package of the AToken wallet APP in question for subsequent forensics and other operations that may be required.”
It also advises individuals who have been impacted or may be affected to take note of the timestamp and hacker’s address to aid in potential recovery.
In recent months, there have been several cases of stolen money from various cryptocurrency platforms and businesses. Meter’s cross-chain bridge attack resulted in the loss of $4.4 million, while NFT marketplace Vulcan Forged saw over $100 million in PYR stolen.
Indeed, NFTs and markets have become vulnerable to hackers, who are reaping the benefits of their popularity. The loss of $2.2 million in Bored Ape NFTs resulted in OpenSea halting transactions. This provoked criticism from the community, who said it was not in the spirit of decentralization.
