Wormhole suffers cyberattack, loses millions of dollars

02/02/2022

The attack affected the website of Wormhole, a cryptocurrency token exchange platform that allows users to convert one form of cryptocurrency into another.

The cyberattackers were able to exploit a vulnerability and transfer several hundred million dollars in Ether (120,000 Ether) to a non-Wormhole wallet, making it the largest cryptocurrency crime so far in 2022.
