Crypto exchange ZB.com blocks withdrawals after a $4.8 million hack

ZB.com is the next name to add its name to this week’s string of hacked crypto platforms.

ZB, Which Itself ‘World’s Most Secure Digital Asset Exchange’, Seemingly Hacked

Crypto exchange ZB.com halted withdrawals on August 2, when faced with approximately $4.8 million being withdrawn from its hot wallet in an attack.

As reported by blockchain security firm PeckShield, a significant amount of money including more than 20 tokens has moved from ZB.com’s hot wallet to various addresses for sale. These tokens were sold on several CEX exchanges, in exchange for 2,224 ETH ($3.6 million).
