The whole crypto community was in shock when Bancor was hacked on 10th July last year with more than $23 million worth of Ethereum being stolen. Almost eight months after the incident, the hackers have allegedly made transactions from the wallet where the stolen Ethereum were kept.
Three days ago, the hackers moved around 25,433 Ethereum to an address which seems to be a mixer service address or an exchange. It cannot be determined yet whether the funds can still be tracked or not.
It might be the situation where the hackers are trying to bewilder people so that the funds can be cashed out later from the new address as the older address was already in the view of people and even etherscan displays a cautionary sign above the previous address “Warning! There are reports that this address was used in a (Bancor) hack. Please exercise caution when interacting with this address”.
The Bancor Hack:
Bancor decentralized exchange was hacked last year where the private key was stolen in an uncertain manner by a hacker that still remains mysterious.
Around 25,544 Ethereum, 230 million Pundi X tokens and 3.2 million Bancor Tokens were stolen during the hack. According to Bancor, the hack was due to the compromisation of a wallet that was kept for smart contract upgradation.
