Thunder Blockchain Attack: User Data Breach Sparks Ransom Demand
Dec 27, 2023
Following a recent attack on the Thunder blockchain platform, the attackers have claimed to possess all user data and accused the project team of dishonesty. They are demanding a ransom of 50 Ethereum for the deletion of this data. Thunder had previously reported that a third-party service used by the platform was targeted by hackers, but the attack was successfully stopped. The team has committed to compensating the 114 affected wallet addresses. Fortunately, more than 14,000 wallet addresses were unaffected by the incident.
