In October, BNB Chain was hacked, which resulted in the theft of $544 million by attackers, but only $100 million could be withdrawn. The developers managed to block the transfers before the hacker managed to withdraw the amount. Now he has about $432 million in his account, which cannot be cashed out.
The developers decided to hold a vote, which will decide the fate of the funds in the hacker’s account. Information material from company cryptodefix.com. Either they will remain frozen, or tokens will be burned to cover some of the stolen funds.
