Atomic Wallet users lose $35M worth of Bitcoin, Ether, Tether and other tokens to hackers

A section of Atomic Wallet users were breached by hackers over the weekend. These users lost close to $35 million worth of various tokens.

Atomic Wallets, a centralized storage and wallet service, said on Monday that the affected users were “less than 1%” of its monthly active users.

These users saw tokens like bitcoin (BTC), ether (ETH), tether (USDT), dogecoin (DOGE), litecoin (LTC), bnb coin (BNB) and polygon (MATIC) stolen from them.

Tron-based USDT seemed to be the largest stolen stash, on-chain analytics cited by blockchain sleuth @ZachXBT showed that the largest victim was found on Tron with 7.95M USDT stolen.

The five biggest losses account for $17M.

Atomic Wallets have asked victims to submit information on a Google Docs form that Atomic Wallet is using to conduct its investigations.

Several users report that their crypto was stolen after a recent software update, while others say they were impacted despite not updating to the latest version.
